Your Own Faith

In today's world, religion is a cosmopolitan entity. Children are exposed to the internet at a young age. A parent's religious belief and practice may not be the belief of the child as he/she grows up and gain insight and knowledge of other religions.

Depending on the severity of influence and indoctrination of a religion, the choice
is left to the child to decide its inclination.

Christian's emphasize its religion with greater earnest. A weaker mortal will be
taken in with little effort.

Buddhist is more a participating religion of practicality. A daily view of
perspective to the happenings of living. Buddhism is simplicity of words
and actions such as observing the five precepts as in Sila. The Dana part is
quite characteristic to many kind-hearted mortals who have a generous
disposition to help others.

Buddhism on its superficial scale may not appeal much to a young
adult as compared to Christianty who manifests strong
psychological indoctrination of the weak mind.

At the end of the day, it is an affinity of destiny one choose the right faith
and practise it in full serenity of its beliefs and calling.

Put myself in perspective, I was from a Catholic school.
But Buddhism is my calling.
