Article 43


Monday, October 08, 2007



Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity.
- Albert Einstein



Whether there is a GOD or not is irrelevent. Whether any text which is recognised by some as authentic and holy is actually authentic and holy is also irrelevent.

What is both important and relevent is that each person live his/her own life without trying to dictate the lives of others; for each person to live in peace with the other; for each person to respect the views and beliefs of the other.

Another persons false beliefs will not affect someone unless one is so insecure in one’s own beliefs that one has to impose one’s views on others, and tend to see all alternate views as a threat to one’s own.

Live and let live. If you know that God exists or does not exist, live in peace with that knowledge and don’t bug others who think differently.

Those who think alike will form groups because they will be comfortable in each others company and will not have to put up with those who keep questioning them on their views. This “grouping” should also not be seen as a threat.

All peace loving people must work together to secure a part of this world wherein people can live according to their individual values and beliefs without co-ercion and domination.

The BUSH MODEL for the world eliminates all individuality and makes everyone a slave to the state. WE HAVE A CHOICE, but the privilege of having such a choice will only continue to exist IF WE SUCCEED IN CREATING such a place where alternative views are respected.


Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

--Imagine, John Lennon

I hate and I love: why I do so you may well ask. I do not know, but I feel it happen and am in agony. - Catullus
