He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

We are fortunate as we are walking just the path of Buddhadhamma without getting blinded by religion. :-)
But go ahead...
Just that! *smile*


BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Nate sante baram sokham _()_

JeffR:
Islam is not a peaceful religion. A quick read through the Koran will prove it.

Yes, that is true. Christianity and Islam are both irrational, and violent. Which is why I don't respect them.

Thank you Bhante. Having many religious Muslim friends, and I really get tired of the constant slighting of the almost 1.57 Billion peaceful Muslims in the world, due to the actions of a few thousand.
