My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
Whether you call it Buddhism or another religion, self-discipline, that's important. Self-discipline with awareness of consequences.
If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.
I always tell people that religious institutions and political institutions should be separate. So while I'm telling people this, I myself continue with them combined. Hypocrisy!
Conversion is not my intention. Changing religion is not easy. You may develop some kind of confusion or difficulties.
“Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion.”
“We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.”
