Buddhists adhere to non-violence, I admire them for that.

ayos din ang Buddhism kasi mas liberated sila


Probably because they're more naturalists. It's a real religion of tranquility

I love their idea of universal brotherhood


How I wish we can have the same principle in our Christian religion too.

Currently nag Tibetan Buddhism ako, pero nagsisimula palang. Isang Rinpoche ang nag refuge sakin. Di pa ganun kadami alam ko but I'll try to share what I know.


In Buddhism, mahalaga lahat ng sentient beings. mapa hayop man, tao, ALIEN, MULTO etc.. Dahil naniniwala ang mga Buddhists na may iba pang realms/worlds/universe maybe at may mga sentient beings din dun, at ang objective ng Buddhism is to free every soul from suffering. Kaya sa Buddhism hanggat maari bawal pumatay pati hayop.

Like sa case ni Buddha Amitabha, who is not from this planet and has gained buddhahood from his lifetime nung isa pa siyang hari ng kanyang domain.

So far yan ang mga nalaman ko, Maybe may mali. I'm just new to it. :/

Looking at Buddhism in another way, they could have been frightening warriors. Wala silang dahilan para matakot mamatay. Made-delay lang nang sandali ang nirvana, pero dahil dito pwede pa silang matawag na bodhisattva.

well may nakapagpost na rin. about karma, medyo malaking misconception yung notion ng mga Pilipino na "reap what you sow". While to some degree, this holds true (and sabi nga ni Raj sa The Big Bang Theory about Karma na "it's practically Newtonian, in the for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" basically "what goes around comes around") the concept of Karma actually transcends the current lifetime that one is living. It "accumulates" through reincarnations - you may either acquire good or bad karma depending on you actions from your previous lifetime.

Reincarnation is a concept in Hinduism (though I don't know about Sikhism). Some folks may have actually confused this with REBIRTH ng Buddhism. May nakapag-explain na nga rin naman, and ang "goal" ay maging "skillful" enough to attain Nirvana.

Following unsavory events from my life, and somehow gaining insight and epiphany about the cracks in the current system within which society works, I tried to seek refuge in the Buddha. (and of course the Dhamma and Sangha). Buddhism doesn't prescribe a certain proclivity for itself to consider a form of theistic following - indeed, some people (including Buddhists as well) see Buddhism more as a philosophy rather than as a religion, though this can go either way; worldwide Buddhism is recognized as a religion. That is why it's possible to follow a Buddhist framework without renouncing one's initiated religion. Or at least, that's how it was explained to me.

I am far from being a "skillful" Buddhist. Time and time again I fall into the worldly pursuit of the desires of the flesh, gluttony, avarice, wrath. Obviously, I'm not a "very good" Catholic either in the simplest sense of the word. It really is difficult to take refuge in an almost non-existent Sangha, were the people I meet everyday do not see the world the way I do (manifesting in acting arrogant, "plastik", prejudiced, self-centered, even hedonistic) I am however not one to judge them. With Buddhism I tend to focus more on actions, about respect for sentient beings, for life, and to learn about discipline to minimize suffering.

And this is deeply ingrained in my personal practice of Muay Thai - to discipline the mind and body rather that to use the art for violence. I know it sounds rather contradicting, but I do not inflict pain nor try to k*ll anyone with it (unless necessitated for self-defense). Within the bounds of training, I only hold respect for my opponents and Kru (trainer).

Attachment - let go of "attachment". It basically means see yourself as one with everything.

Purify the mind, do good.

Sometimes, I wish it was that easy. Well, challenge accepted.

Namo Amidabuddha.

One thing I love most about Buddhism is their closeness to Mother Nature.

My most favorite advice of Buddha which appeals to a freethinker like myself:

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

Ideally yes, but is not the reality with other buddhist communities.

Even if you don't become a Buddhist, certain practices can be helpful like meditating to quiet your mind.

First and foremost, Buddhism is a path to liberation from suffering. In essence, it is a system of achieving peace in the present life. Gautama the Buddha intuited that suffering arises from a person's disordered selfish desires and that suffering can be ended by shifting our consciousness. He taught that we create our own suffering as we allow ourselves to be driven by our selfish desires, creating a mind that makes this suffering real. To end this suffering, we need to shift the mind to see things as they are and allow life to flow without clinging. In short, s@%t happens in life; but how we perceive the situation will determine whether we will suffer or we will be calm. Detached mindfulness is the heart of the practice that will allow this kind of living.

Buddhists, like the majority of Tibetans, are always at peace with themselves and with their neighbors because they always observe the Golden rule. Hope filipinos can do the same thing.
