Absurd Ascetic Trial

marius

Had a time reading a book about Time Magazine’s The Face of Buddhist Terror in Cafe’ Marius last night and made me thought about this ascetic subject.

In the account of religious extremism of Muslim militants, fundamentalist Christians, Hindu nationalists and ultra-Orthodox Jews, these entire radical influences, Buddhism has escaped the trial.

In my efforts to understand the world religions and its origins of how it came to be, I have deeply understood the matter in which the great religious scholars would want the present age – the scientific revolution, to understand, respect and accept.

I started my venture in the cosmic subject of religion as I was being tranced into asceticism. Withstanding my theistic views in pursuing my spiritual goal, I ended up briefly scanning and reading the nontheistic metaphors and symbols being offered by Buddhism.

Buddhism is a non-theistic religion, the fourth biggest religion in the world which existed around 2,500 years ago. It is related to the traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices based on the teachings of Gautama Buddha. However, the Buddha did not invent Buddhism. The Buddha was a Hindu, he was reforming Hinduism. The same as Jesus Christ did not invent Christianism. Jesus Christ was a Jew, he was reforming Judaism.

Buddhism is very famous for its tolerance and pacifism. But in some Asian nations, the monks are inciting bigotry and violence against Muslims. It is said to be, as what the Time magazine would consider as the Burmese Bin Laden. There are monks slauthering Muslims in Burma. These radical Buddhists think that the Muslim majority is a threat to their religion, their country and its culture and traditions.

I was really convinced that religion is extremely influential. Religion can influence a country’s politics and orchestrate how it will work. This realization left me to a conclusion that Islam, Buddhism or any kind of religion does not breed violence. Most religions claim to be forwarded into being peaceful. But some of the followers of religion have caused havoc such as the Islamic extremism, the Catholic Church sexual abuse cases, the Spanish Inquisition and the Armenian Genocide during the Ottoman Empire.

It is the act of these people that is to be considered violent and must be condemned.  Buddhists are humans; it is in nature for humans to act violent when threatened.
