Seeing is Believing

I wanted to write a blog post for a while about my belief system. Why I am a Buddhist and so close to that “religion” or philosophy.

Instead I thought I share some more pictures to not bore you with the same text and reasoning. The first one is about Karma.

karma

Karma is important for me. I like to treat others with respect and this note clearly points out that how you are treated by others is not your problem. It is theirs. It reminds me of how I have been treated by some over the past few months. I don’t worry about it. It is how I react to any treatment that affects my own Karma. This is what is important to me.

The second picture suggests Buddhism being a science of mind rather than a religion. For me religion doesn’t mean anything. For me Buddhism is a philosophy, a way of life with a lot of tools to make your life more pleasant for you and others. Maybe I oversimplify Buddhism.

Buddhist Science

I understand that there is more to it. But for the time being I like to see it as a science not a religion. Really!

This nicely leads to the next picture. Promoting Human Values is what Buddhism is about.

Promoting Human Values

Do you understand that? I believe in a philosophy not a religion. I believe in the goodness of people and mankind. I believe in in human value.

It doesn’t really matter what you call it.

Have a great day!

Love and Kindness,
