Similar to medicine which is used for treating physical diseases,
religion can play a role in removing people's mental suffering

Great changes are now taking place in China
Like a fast-moving train, China grows quickly
Inevitably, in the meantime, some Chinese people may feel greater pressure

When your former neighbor or your old friend suddenly became a millionaire overnight and your wife is talking about their big house endlessly, can you keep happy and stay calm?
When you are facing a rather fierce competition after you finally graduated from a university and looking for a job, can you stay calm?
When you have spent most of your life staying in a backwater in a small village, now a newly constructed roadway opens the door to a more colorful world and you are unable to join it for the moment, can you stay calm?

If you are a doctor, can you stay calm when your patient offers you a generous red envelope?
If you are a government official, can you stay calm in front of bribe?
If you are a businessman, can you stay calm when you happen to know that some others have made huge money illegally while they escaped from the punishment?   

Yes, for most of us, I believe the answer is “yes”
but there are some weak people who really need support and constraint
We can't expect every person to be strong and self-disciplined
Although religion is not scientific,
it might be useful sometimes

If we don't promote Buddhism
The Christianity will get more change to step in
Buddhism is close to Chinese culture
It's better to have a Chinese-looking Buddha than a western-looking God

Why D L is kind of popular in the west?
partly because his mysterious and attractive speeches
Why not set a real example and spread the real Buddhist theory so as to take the place of the fake one?

In conclusion, it might be time for China to promote Buddhism
I hope it can help us to promote social harmony
BTW, I am not a Buddhist

:):) :)

Religions only become a problem when they are politicised.

Though im not a Buddhist i like some of their ideas and i dont class Buddhism as a religion.

The Budda for example doesn't believe in luck, fate or superstitious mumbo-jumbo, im in fully agreement with this.

Cause and effect works every time.

Buddism is firmly in place in China and will always be there.
Let the Chinese individual decide which religion they want to practice. It is a personnal choice.
If I chose to be serious about any one religion, my choice would be Buddism.
