    If you are Buddhist, or any other religion, know that Jesus loves you so, so much! He invites all men to Him, regardless of who you are or your past, to have a relationship with Him, as well as the promise of eternal life. His love is so, so big! Jesus said:

    "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls" (Matthew 11).

    You can read my other articles on salvation if it interests you! God loves you!

    As a practicing Buddhist for over 8 years, I feel obligated to attention to a number of inaccuracies in this article.

    First, Mahayana Buddhists do not believe that Buddha was a god. They draw no distinction between the Buddha and themselves.

    Second, Buddhist writings use parables and similies as a way to convey complex ideas; it is the use of metaphors. Third, it is correct that Buddhism focus on raising awareness to the workings of the mind. In this respect it is self focused. What needs to be understood is that Buddhist believe all people are interconnected, and working for the happiness of others is paramont.

    Forth, not all Buddhist believe in nothingness. Mahayana Buddhist believe,during life and death, the life of the individual is fused with the universe. Fifth, Buddhist view life as precious-just a god loves all souls. I do not feel you intentionally misrepresented my faith. I invite you to view my writings to learn more about it.

    Hi Andrew,
    Thank you for your comment. Yes you are right - I would never intentionally misrepresent your faith. :) Thank you for all the clarification, and I pray you have blessed day.
    Respectfully,
