:idea: When saving screen shots of text, use PNG instead of JPG — they are much sharper and usually smaller too. After saving an image to disk, you can upload attachments to this forum from the tab below the message reply box.

Actually, I disagree that Buddhists don't worship anyone. They do indeed worship the Buddha, but not out of fear or desire for his help. They worship the Buddha because he did what was very difficult to do, and taught the right path for others to find liberation from suffering through their own effort, knowledge, and mindfulness.

Buddhaṃ pūjemi, Dhammaṃ pūjemi, Saṅghaṃ pūjemi.

Hi Bhante

I think the quality of 'worship' is different, don't you think? I think Buddhist worship is closer to deep veneration and having feelings of intense gratitude rather than its Christian equivalent.
kind regards

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
