That is great. The more people get to know Buddhism the better this planet will be.

There is, may be 1000 of religion every one promise you haven, after all this killing, lie & sin, How can you go to Haven, after all this sin if you can go to haven then haven must be very cheap place to go (!) No one has defined the haven as Buddha did in Buddhism. Therefore if there is a way to haven, then only path we haven is the “Buddha” only Buddha’s teaching. The only Truth.
Therefore who ever build a Vihara (Temple) he earns merit (good karma) because he is helping some one to go to Haven (Nirvana). Saving us from committing a sin, may Buddha bless them who have done this unbelievable great Karma (Job) and saving us from bad karma and a step toward nirvana ?

I agree that only Buddha have shown us the right and correct path. It's very sad for someone who born as a human and do not wish to become a Buddhist.

They don't become Buddhist because they don't see the teachings and how they differ or the precision of Buddha's teachings. Most are just born into a culture and follow tradition without questioning anything.

Those who were lucky enough to have faith in Lord Buddha in this human birth should make sure to practice daily so they are not born into this world as such misguided beings themselves.
