You don't have to be old to be wise.

Yeah, but I'm sure being the ******* dalai lama helps.

You mean knowledge meets superstition. The dalai lama is a fraud and his religion is just as ridiculous and baseless as every other religion
User avatar #18 to #15 - mehmachine (06/19/2014) [-]
It might be just as baseless, but at least his religion is the only one that actually follows through with it's beliefs on peace and kindness.

I think Buddhism is the only religion that is respected and admired by everyone, regardless of your own religion. That doesnt make sense.

The reason everyone respects Buddhism is because it is completely unassuming, humble, self-effacing and respectful to all people of all religions. (I'm not looking for the 1-2 individuals throughout all history who may debunk this assertion.)

Instead of the vast majority of the world just all being appreciative of Buddhism why the **** don't they and all the other religions out there (inc atheism which i am. not like those arseholes that shove it down your throat and claim it's its own religion. No atheism is NOT it's own religion. That would be the epitome of irony. I just dont believe in a god.) just practice what the Buddhists preach and just ******* chill!?

So much more important things to worry about in the world than who believes the hardest in a spirit upstairs. Like why the **** does my wifi run slow in the bathroom? will I ever make time to start to watch GoT? Is it really possible if i move to hollywood and bump into a hot movie star like scarlett johansson and act all 'i dont even know who you are, i'll treat you like everyone else, that she'll find that intriguing and jump me in the street? Will i ever open these £100 work out DVDs i bought a year ago? and who the **** is joshlol?

so yeah.. cool robes tho.

Knowledge is learning, wisdom is knowing.

no, knowledge is information gained from facts, wisdom is information gained from experience

Here's a short story my chinese dad told me that kinda makes me think of buddhism as a cooler religion:

There once was a man who wanted nothing more than to meet Guanyin (the lotus flower lady disciple of buddha). He walked to Guanyin's temple and after a long journey finally found her. He asked her: "Guanyin, everytime i've prayed for something, everytime i've longed for anything, i've prayed to you. Tell me, who do you pray to? Do you pray for buddha?" Guanyin answered "No, i pray to Guanyin". "But you are Guanyin!" replied the man. "Yes, and when longing for something it is better to look towards yourself than towards someone else"

silly story, the ol' dad's still atheist, but hey it shows a little more progressiveness than what organized religion back in the west used to be like back in the day. It kinda surprised me.

I'm a buddhist too and have practised mindfulness meditation (Vipassana bhavana) for several years, and from my experience I can say you can really gain wisdom through buddhism.
I won't speak the details here, but awareness is the key to save yourself and the entire world.
