A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

Religious tolerance

In my writings I from time to time will mention other religions, I use these to illustrate points, not to discredit or dismiss. If I say I agree with one way more than another, that is my preference, not the way everyone else should think. I point out that what I say is meant to provoke feelings and thoughts. There are many lessons I quote from Christ, Lao Tsu and Gandhi, among others. All religions and faiths are paths to help their followers be better people, treat others with kindness and to be happier. Speaking of Gandhi, he says what I am trying to with much better results, so with your indulgence will close today with a quote from him.

“What is necessary is not a uniform religion, but mutual respect and tolerance among the followers of the different religions. What we aim at is not bleak consolidation, but unity within the diverse. Any attempt to suffocate traditions, which have originated from common heritage and which have been conditioned by climate and environment, is not only doomed to failure, it is a sacrilege.” Mahatma Gandhi
