I just took the quiz again:

1. Sikhism (100%) More Info
2. Bahai (97%) More Info
3. Hinduism (96%) More Info
4. Jainism (87%) More Info
That's good, you're improving. :tongue:

Jainism is my second favorite religion after Buddhism and see you've moved up to 87% on Jainism.

Re: The Baha'i Faith

From their Constitution: V. THE UNIVERSAL HOUSE OF JUSTICE The Universal House of Justice shall consist of nine men who have been elected from the Bahá’í community in the manner hereinafter provided. And I have heard from some Bahais that this does not mean "mankind" but specifically men only. For a...

Re: The Baha'i Faith

What did it feel like being there? Very peaceful, beautiful landscaping. Did you visit the tomb of Bahaullah as well? I think so, don't remember for sure, I was a teenager at the time. What made you not want to follow the Bahai faith, other than perceived similarities to other religions? Yes, prima...

Re: The Baha'i Faith

I liked the Bahais at one time, a long time ago, but felt in the end they were just trying to make a one world religion by combining bits and pieces from all of them. It's not a bad idea and might help create world peace, but is it true? There are some religions which have concepts that are quite co...

Re: The Jains were prepared ...

Forgot to add:

The Jains were also into minimalism (one of their 5 precepts), before it was cool. Some are so much into minimalism, they don't even own or wear clothes. :o (Digambara monks)

Re: The Jains were prepared ...

My response: Ha! That's right! The Jains were prepared 3,000 years ago! The Jains were also vegetarians before it was cool. The Jains also believed in plant consciousness before it was cool. The Jains (like other Dharmic religions) were anti-war before it was cool. https://dharmawheel.org/viewtopic....

Re: Nyanaponika Thera. (d.1994)

Yes, he was very great. He was a great teacher and had a very interesting, intriguing life. He escaped Nazi Germany and was later a prisoner of war in Sri Lanka since he was German (even though of course he couldn't be a spy since he was Jewish ethnicity). He literally escaped Germany and Austria wi...

I bought a big print some years ago (from R. Museum?) of this one, 3x2 ft or so and had it framed. :buddha1:

Seems I recall that Buddha did visit, even teach on occasion from caves.
Yes, definitely. He spent about 6 years in one cave (forget the name) doing ascetic practices.

Beautiful painting. Reminds me of Carlsbad Caverns or other caves with stalactites and stalagmites.
