Namaste, Karma. Another Buddhist here.

I find it very interesting that Tenzin Gyatso has said recently that religion by itself may no longer provide a satisfactory solution to the ills of the world. He is calling for a new secular ethics.

He said:

"All the world's major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether."

This is one example of why Buddhism is great. It is rational and non-dogmatic. Even the Buddha was originally but a common man.

Parama-mangalam!

Hello friend. A very informative post. Thank you for it. It would be nice if those interested in the teachings of Buddha could gather together locally to discuss and help each other along the path dont you think? Buddhism is very pragmatic indeed. The Buddha encouraged all to not take his teachings on faith but to put them to the test. To take from them what you find true and leave what you do not. I personally do not consider pure Buddhism a religion but more of a philosophy of life. A guide along the path.

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

As a Buddhist I don't believe Jesus is God's son. Jesus might have been a bodhisattva at best. I put no value in a supreme creator or other planes of existence.

There is a legend that Jesus studied with the Buddhists in Japan for twelve years at age 21. He went back to Judea at 33 and was sentenced to die on the cross. He escaped back to Japan however and lived to be 106. The tomb of Jesus is actually in northern Japan.

Democrat, Mazie Hirono, who will be the nation’s first Buddhist senator when the new Congress convenes in January.

Hirono, who is also the first Asian-American woman elected to the Senate, was one of three Buddhists in the House of Representatives. The other two, Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga. and Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, both won re-election on Tuesday.

Hirono was raised in the Jodo Shinso school of Pure Land Buddhism, one of the most popular traditions in East Asia. She has said that she “believes in the precepts of Buddhism” but does not practice the religion daily.
