See Beyond Your Own Religion

I feel that people who have a religion (or profess to have one) must learn to listen to other religions, and not be too obssessed with protecting and promoting our own alone. A lot of times we get into an emotive faith and just stubbornly refuse to listen to others. It is not surprising to me, therefore if many so-called persons who fought and kill to protect their religion or God or their religious sanctity are found languishing in the depths of hell, rather than heaven. And being fair, I do not exclude the possibility of Buddhists being too "possessive" of Buddhism or their particular traditions, until they cannot see the wisdom in other religions/traditions. So, try to see beyond your own religions. Don't make sweeping statements/rulings, or whatever else, without an actual study of the facts.
