It is not my specific intention to spread the word of Buddhism. Nevertheless, I feel it as my obligation and duty to pass on the teachings of Buddha to those who have a special connection with the Buddhist tradition.
Whether you call it Dharma or not, I consider it essential in life to be a good person, with beneficial thoughts, acting positively and being a source of wellbeing for all living beings.
Sometimes I feel like it is not helpful to use the name of a religion – or in this case, Buddhism. This might give the impression that it is something separate and exclusive. While it is more important that we respect and value each other, by recognizing the importance of others.
In this sense, the Buddhist doctrine and practice can contribute to a good cause, that interests many people. Without having to be Buddhist in particular.
