Beautiful aspects of Arab culture

Postby Luke » Mon Mar 29, 2010 6:12 pm

It's all too easy to find reasons to hate Arab cultures these days; one need look no further than the daily headlines. But hatred is not Buddhist, and there are some beautiful things which were created by Arabs:
1) qawwali music

2) Arab architecture

3) Arab literature, such as "One Thousand and One Nights"

I think it's important to remember that Arabs too are our fellow human beings who possess Buddha-nature and who desire happiness.

It's not fashionable to love Arabs these days, but as Buddhists we must strive to extend our love to all living creatures.
