Hello AF friends, As being buddist and living in usa for so long since I was little. I have notice belief in religion is very different from every culture. Im trying to figure out what is the true religion? I know that there are many religion in this world , we can say our religion is the best. We can say that in our own community or people have same faith. But as getting older starting to see things different. Its peoples belief in there religion. I live in usa where there much Christians then any other religion. Christian don't believe in ghost , they do believe that when you die your soul travels to other dimension like heaven or hell. Living here the americans never had to worry about evil spirits or ghost encounter. If they hear that theres a haunted place or event they would grab there cameras and ghost detector just to try to get something that they can prove to people lol. But anyways I find it very different from thinking , fear and the truth. In usa they see a poisonous snake there would be a brave person would try to catch it, and handle it without making it hurt. But In asia if you see poisonous snake they would run or would try to kill it. Just like if there some where haunted people wont get close to the place in asia. I think in asian country its the fear of lessons that we get from elders and people or religion script that make us fear. Long time ago I wanted to leave Buddhist religion, and what every comes with it, like black magic, evil spirits sorceries and all those goods stuff. Because if I could leave this place and the religion , I have to go live wheres no Asian , only other race. But that couldn't never happen. I don't fear other races here I fear my own people. Im afraid of getting curse, or sorceries if someone really hates me or what I said to them they take it the wrong way. I have seen a lot about these stuff. But I have never seen anything with other races. Because they don't believe in it. In asia they have the little spririt houses everywhere on the streets and in there yard. I went to Thailand couple of years ago, where there was a road that curves, there was like about 20 spirit house along the side roads. Where there was a lot of offering to the spirit. Because that road they thought it was curse and many people died of accident there. Its because the people believe it was a curse road. Scratching my head and thought hmmm. Here in America they have a lot of roads where theres accident and people died a lot. But they investigate that the speed limit was too high so they would reduce speed limit and for sure accident went down percentage. Here we go hunting in the forest , I mean deep forest . The people my age that mostly live in usa never thought of forest spirits or ghost. They go in there with open mind and don't think about that and would stay up on the tree pitch dark wating for a deer to walk by. But when I go with an elder person that , he would offer the spirt forest something and would ask favors to get a deer. Kinda spooks me, because I do wear amulet when I go and I don't think about ghost and stuff. I want ask ask our fellow members what do yall think? I was thinking yall think the same but different from me?
