We started the Buddhism (http://www.fb.com/BuddhistPeople
) page to give the world Buddha's teachings. The Offering Of Dhamma. Nothing Else. By doing so, at least to put one good thought into you on daily basis. To coax you to find your own salvation. we are not doing this for prestige or to belittle other religions & visions. Our only aim is to give the world pure Theravada Buddhism.
We do not agree with all the atrocities that is going around the world in the name of protecting Buddhism.
Buddha's teachings would be in this world for another 2443 years only, according to Buddha himself. (Buddha said that his teachings would survive in the world for 5000 years from his 'Parinirvana'. Now, 2557 years have elapsed.)
No amount of shouting or fighting would make it survive another day more than that.
No one can destroy it by any action of theirs a day less than that.
Our duty is to find our own liberation by ending suffering following Our Gautama Buddha's great teachings. That was what he WANTED.
Acts of violence in the name of protecting Buddhism would only bring demerit to oneself. There are ways of countering opponents peacefully. Buddhism is a very Peaceful vision. Please do not try to make it otherwise by making false statements and call upon unnecessary arguments which would coax people who read them to counter attack which would bring them demerit. Therefore, we have decided to remove all the unnecessary comments from today.
We would take this opportunity to say to the world one other fact which is making a big commotion in the Asian world. Buddha was born in Lumbini which belonged to the ANCIENT INDIA (INDO-NEPALESE Region) DURING GAUTAMA BUDDHA'S TIME. Today it is in the TERAI PLANES OF SOUTHERN NEPAL since Nepal & India are two different countries today.
May the Triple Gem Bless You!
