Proof of the toxicity of religion infecting Dharma one need look no further than present day Shri Lanka. In Tibetan history, we need look no further than the attempt of Pabhongkha to annihilate his "competitors" in Chamdo and elsewhere.
One can observe the religious civil wars that were waged in Japan, Thailand, etc., for proof that Dharma is easily corrupted by religion.
The religious impulse in human beings may have been adapative at the tribal, city, and national level, but this impulse is clearly toxic at the global level. As HH Dalai Lama states:
"Any religion-based answer to the problem of our neglect of inner values can never be universal, and so will be inadequate. What we need today is an approach to ethics which makes no recourse to religion and can be equally acceptable to those with faith and those without: a secular ethics,"
Human beings need to evolve beyond religion. Dharma can assist this -- but I am afraid that Buddhism cannot.
You are taking a quote of HHDL out of context to assert your mistaken cause to end all religions including Buddhism which is the opposite of what HHDL wants. Extremely knowingly deceitful which I condemn completely in both your intent and execution.
Since you mentioned your guru in the previous post, why don't you write to him to say you are rousing people on the internet, with a few of your supporters who also made your latest immediate U-turn as ever already signed up, to end all religions including Buddhism?
Or do you want someone else to do that for you?
