  1. I have been raised orthodox/catholic… but the more I research Buddhism… it makes a lot of sense. Blessings to all of you regardless of your beliefs ❤️🙏🏼

  2. As long as you practice rituals, channeling, idol worship, chanting & relying on your self righteousness without God anywhere in the equation, it is a religion no matter how many times one claim that they’ve not in a religion 🧔🏽☝🏾
    Jesus is the ONLY way ✅✅✅✅✅✅✅

  4. I love and respect the Dalai Lama, but I think he's wrong about nothingness. Nothingness, or emptiness, is required for things to exist. Like they say how the usefulness of the cup is in its emptiness. You need a space that can be filled up for things to exist in the first place. So you see, God, the Creator, is present, even in emptiness. If He hadn't provided it, nothing would (be able to) exist.

    Think about that last sentence for a moment (mind-bender, like a Koan Zen riddle).

  5. Peace,Fraternity and love is our Buddhism's. Mhada is Babasaheb's and people animal and houses are Babasaheb's. Safaai Kaamgaar is our. Indian Buddhist People's food we want. I earned 4,65,00,000 Rs. In 3/2/2016. Samyak is Student of Buddhist International School.

  6. Relativity with Undestroable Buddhism. Why our children not coming play in time ? They should come on time. We are Buddhist people. Buddhist people not getting excellent sleep. I seen Bhimakoregaav place. I want to see peaceful talking in my parents.

  7. We suffered because of Chemical hazardous. I seen people of mine in Naagapur. 4,65,00,000 Rs. Donation to myself. They suffered why not they. Babasaheb Buddha Dhamma Sangh (Dhammapada) is excellent .

  8. The first time I met with my current teacher, he said to me, "Shingon (Japanese esoteric Buddhism) is not a religion, it is working with energies and levels of consciousness". That struck me so profoundly at the time. And it certainly rings true for me today.
