Thank you for helping me know the truth.

But , there are other images about Myanmar.

What is your idea about these images :









/\ This isn't Buddhism.

What the Buddha taught and what a modern aggressive government that probably care not what Buddism is about and just use it as a front to be akin to 'the people' are two very different things.
I myself am not buddist but I have read a lot of the Buddha's teachings and it is purely peaceful.

Mideast, you have been known to be one of the least accurate minds on this website. In this matter, it will not be to you that I look for answers.


I know consensus is a horrible way to judge something

But I tend to look at a posters POST to STAR count, its the best way to spot a troll in my humble opinion.

If there post count is larger than their star count that means they spend alot of time simply making statements that no one agrees with, not even one member out of the 300k that come here thought many of their post deserved even 1 star.

Not the best way, but it does say something.


The truth is known by few and denied by many.
How many stars do you think Jesus would get if he was posting? Or Buddha?

This is not even remotely on topic.
But just in case: the muslim religion should not be judged by those extremists who use it as a pretext for violence, but buddhism should?

Buddhism is about living in peace. +

And embracing the oppression. -

 


recently , we have seen a hypocritical behaviour from Buddhists.

Which the blame is on the followers.

If thats the case, why is Buddhism like chapter 2 in every book on Indian history?

The only aspects of Hinduism that predate Buddhism is the Vedas and some Upanishads.

Summary of Buddhism (which also negates every religion in the world)


Going by the title of the OP...I'm getting the impression that you are think Buddhism is an antedote to other faiths that you seem to have a problem. Its as if you've joined a cool new club and your'e flashing your membership badge around.

You think Buddhism works for you? Fine.
But ask yourself if Buddha intended Buddhism to "negate" every other religion.


First off, I've been a Buddhist a long time. Secondly, Buddhism is description of phenomena, not a religion.

Lastly, yes the whole point of Madhyamaka is to negate religion. Madhyamaka texts are full of attacks against different Indian religions.

You seem to confuse emptiness as a buddhist term with non-existence, like most westerners.


Negating claims of existence, does not mean claiming non-existence.

It is self defeating. The "desire" of the Buddhist is to "desire" nothing.


I guess you never heard of sexual practice and so on in Vajrayana.

The reason its always 2nd is that aside from Sikhism(16th CE), Buddhism is the younger religion in India. Especially compared to pre Hinduism religions, the original Ancient Dravidian Religion, Jainism etc.

Hinduism is formed from merging the newly arrived Vedas along with Ancient Dravidian Religions. The population combined from this higher in India, so of course, the majority will be shown more often. And don't forget, most Hindu's sees Buddha as a reincarnation of Vishnu, the 24th avatar.

Most of Hinduism developed after Buddhism. The whole Buddha being an avatar of Vishnu is eighth century.

Like I said before, I admit that the Vedas and some Upanishads came before Buddhism.

One more confirmation that all false religions are illuminati created Mind Control


All false religions are illuminati created...

"Every major religion in the world has been manufactured or infiltrated by the Illuminati to enslave and brainwash society. In essence, religion was the first form of mind control. The indoctrination of the masses by a "Trojan Horse" false religion has allowed the Illuminati to take control and work in secret for many, many years." Link

The answer depends on how you define the word "Religion"

Perhaps a better question would be: Is there a true God?

The answer is yes.

I have seen proof of this and KNOW who He is.

Religion and God are complete total opposites.

Religion lies and hates.

God loves and only speaks the truth.

I would have to say Advaita Vedanta is the true path.
Ultimately - you are!!
And there is no path to the self.

We are all the prodigal son, we leave home go and explore the world of things and then turn around and go home to the no thingness.

Its ironic that you mentioned that, because as you may or may not know Gaudapada lifted many verses from Madhyamaka texts.

Atleast Gaudapada's Advaita Vedanta is a straight rip off of Madhyamaka.

You are blinded by labels. It is the labels that make 'your' world.
You build the world and then believe in it.

Yes there may be a "God", but from my point of view this "Creator" would be merely be hungry ghosts masquerading as God.

Perfect examples are Yahweh and Allah, who are downright evil spirits.

Evil spirits are the fallen angels.

Some believe that some of the posters on ATS are evil spirits as well...

“Just check how they are massacring and burning Muslims in Myanmar.”
Mideast
1. Why is there a picture of the Dali Lama? Is your site claiming that he is Jewish? (That looks like a www.merriam-webster.com... ). Is that site claiming that he is behind the massacres? Both "points" are absurd. Also, most ATS subscribers do not speak Arabic.
2. Myanmar is a brutal dictatorship. But lets for the sake of argument accept your argument that Buddhists committed atrocities without direction and without being compelled by the authorities ( that is contentious but I’ll accept that proposition provisionally) . That still means that you are committing en.wikipedia.org... ,* en.wikipedia.org... , en.wikipedia.org... , en.wikipedia.org... , en.wikipedia.org... , en.wikipedia.org... and many more. Unfortunately, my time is to limited to include all the fallacies that you committed.
* In your case, you are saying that Buddhism was the cause of the massacres. That is like saying that Islam is to blame for atrocities that a minority of its followers committed.
