<p>Any Buddhists here?</p>
<p>I like the concept "metta", or "loving-kindness"</p>
<p>And the "may all beings be happy"-prayer:</p>
<p><strong><em>May all beings - tall or short, fat or thin, smelly or not, cute or cool, funky or fresh - be happy!</em></strong></p>

I find the phenomenalist epistemology of Buddhism to be far more valuable than the weaksauce alternative dogma of Western hippies or the lame quasi-Judeo-Christian Pure Land sect ( 净土宗).
Understanding Buddhism as a quintessential "religion of peace" doesn't even begin to scratch the surface, and people who end their historical and philosophical inquiries at such a point are cruising for a brutal colon bruising.
