    Those are spiritual principles. To bad that the exact opposite is being promoted by today's popular culture. Look at "Occupy Wall Street" for example.

    Every time I see this picture of a dog on fire.

    I think of Sky trying to turn her dog into a Buddhist. :cool:

    Of course. As long as we can't come to any kind of agreement on a personal level, how can we expect more from our leadership?

    You.

    Using spiritual concepts to push a political agenda.

    YOU are the problem.

    Hinduism and Buddhism tend to blur when one talks about spiritual concepts.

    Kind of group them together at times--except one group are polytheist and the other ---come to think about it, Buddha is not considered a god by Buddhist. So who do Buddhist pray to?? Are they some form of atheist?

    Maybe I am missing something.

    Buddhism is basically a philosophy; and not really a religion.
