Hi.
As you know, there are many different ways.

for more info ,check this website.

Buddhism is about peace and love, but they usually don’t know God, our Creator. Christianity is about peace, love, and knowing God. Know that God can help you live a better life if you want Him to help you. You can have a personal relationship with God by saying the prayer below. God is our Creator, all-knowing, all-powerful, eternal, holy, love. God loves us and sent us His Son, Jesus Christ, so we can go to heaven if we know and follow Him.

Some people report they do have temporary help from buddhist meditation, but rarely they have peace that comes from Jesus. It’s not the kind of peace the world gives us.
