  • I don't belong to an organized religion, so there aren't any "lessons" that everyone learns. But the overall message of "ALL religions are equal" is something I am very proud of.

  • I think the most important concept in Buddhism IMO is that of anattā or non-self. To me, understanding this paves the way for loving-kindness and compassion & realizing our interconnectedness to everything in the universe.

    I think this is the most important lesson about approaching Buddhist study though: “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.”~Buddha

  • My favorite thing about Christianity is the complete and utter simplicity of the path to salvation - believe and receive.
