Avoiding Fundamentalism

1465125_449880231848794_7590114971084743906_nNo Buddhist who understands the Buddha’s teaching thinks that other religions are wrong. No one who has made a genuine effort to examine other religions with an open mind could think that. The first thing we notice when we study the different religions is exactly how much they have in common.

All religions agree that the present condition of humanity is unsatisfactory. All believe that a change in attitude and behavior is needed to improve the human situation. All teach an ethics that includes love, kindness, patience, generosity and social responsibility, and all accept the existence of some form of absolute.

―Bhikkhu Shravasti Dhammika
