The Nechung Oracle Program Thought for the Moment...

I am interested not in converting other people to Buddhism but in how we
Buddhists can contribute to human society, according to our own ideas.  I
believe that other religious faiths also think in a similar way, seeking to
contribute to the common aim....

Just as Buddha showed an example of contentment, tolerance, and serving others
without selfish motivation, so did Jesus Christ.  Almost all of the great
teachers lived a saintly life--not luxuriously like kings or emperors but as
simple human beings.  Their inner strength was tremendous, limitless, but the
external appearance was of contentment with a simple way of life.

...the motivation of all religious practice is similar--love, sincerity,
honesty.  The way of life of practically all religious persons is contentment.
The teachings of tolerance, love, and compassion are the same.  A basic goal
is the benefit of humankind--each type of system seeking in its own unique
ways to improve human beings.  If we put too much emphasis on our own
philosophy, religion, or theory, are too attached to it, and try to impose it
on other people, it makes trouble.  Basically all the great teachers, such as
Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, or Mohammed, founded their new teachings with a
motivation of helping their fellow humans.  They did not mean to gain anything
for themselves nor to create more trouble or unrest in the world.

Most important is that we respect each other and learn from each other those
things that will enrich our own practice.  Ever if all the systems are
separate, since they each have the same goal, the study of each other is
helpful.
