To all my Christian friends, Merry Christmas. Regardless of your faith the message that Jesus taught about love and forgiveness is one that everyone can lean from. Even if you are an agnostic, the message about how to treat one another is valuable. As a Buddhist, many of his teachings are just a different way of saying the same message as Krishna, Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius, Lao Tsu, or many other wise teachers. For when we exhibit the true spirit of love and compassion without the commercialization everyone is happier.
