Buddhism. I Love It! Do You?

I have recently taken “refuge” in the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha.
I am proud to call myself a Buddhist now.
I am proud to say I am no longer a Catholic.
I am proud to say I am no longer being brainwashed.

Do you love Buddhism?
🙂
I am very aware that Buddhism is not a religion, thank you very much.

Congratulations… Same for me. But try not to be ‘proud’ on this account…

I have been practicing Buddhism for 11 years, now.
I have a local teacher who is a monk from the Dalai Lama’s monastery.
Buddhism has finally brought me happiness in my life, because of the internal changes that come from living your practice.
Yes, I love it. It is my place of refuge and in 60 years I have never found any other place that can compare.

Buddhism has a lot of harmful statements, and no I do not like it. First of all they put good and evil, light and darkness on the same level. This is false. Light can be defined by itself . On the other hand darkness is only defined as the lack of light. This is also true for good and evil. Second they say that man is as important as any other creature. This means that killing a man is the same as killing a bug. They say that they use this statement in the interest of not killing either, but… Read more »

Buddhism seems to resonate quite harmonically with modern science. In order to understand we must redefine our understanding of material reality. Our reality exhibits a daulistic nature. The matter that makes up what we experience exists both as a wave or non material entity, and a particle or material entity. This wave form that particles exhibit has no definite location within space or time, but can only be understood as being everywhere all at once, spread out through the entire universe. As astounding as this may sound, the experiment that confirmed this has been repeated thousands of time with the… Read more »

I’m a member of the LDS church and as far as I know, I have never met a Buddhist. I respect the values and morals. We both strive for self-mastery and that is something I really respect. I believe Buddha was an inspired man and he has contributed to this world greatly. (I also believe, because of this, that he was tempted many times.)

absolutely. In fact, I’ve just started getting into it too 🙂 I’m a very philosophical person, and as I’m going through some of the Buddhist teachings, I’m surprised too see that a lot of the things I’ve thought of brought by observation are pointed out! kudos too you!

i’ve read much on Buddhism. I did a double major in theology. I gotta say the teachings do not hold against the true teachings of Jesus. that’s my personal opinion. Too much disconnect from what I feel God intended. I assume you are part of the watered down American Buddhist movement. if it brings you closer to God then by all means. The love emphasized by jesus, that to me is the ultimate spiritual teachings. Now remember this, you will have buddhists that kill people. That does not represent Buddhism. Likewise with Christianity. and it’s more important what Jesus said… Read more »

No. For to do so would shackle me to buddhism with chains of desire, the very antitheses of Buddhist philosophy. Attachment, even to Lord Buddha or his teachings, are dangerous indeed. “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of Teachers, elders or wise men. Believe only after… Read more »

Until the claims it makes about reality are demonstrated to be true, I don’t give a rat’s äss about Buddhism.
