What you should tell your friends and relatives

Postby pilgrim » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:21 pm

Those for whom you have sympathy, those with whom you communicate, your friends, intimates, kinsmen and relations - all should be told about, grounded in, established in the Four Limbs of Stream-Winning. What are these four? Faith in the Buddha, faith in the Dhamma, faith in the Sangha, and virtue that is dear to the Noble Ones and conducive to concentration of mind. ~ Samyutta Nikaya. V:364

Yeah sure... and my ma will start her fourfold sermon alright:
consequences of apostasy, threats of hellfire, the prodigal son and how soon I should go back to Jesus for my own good...

And my maternal uncle....you don't even want to know...

That one friend of mine who attempted to convert me to Islam ended up in a useful dialogue and was surprised at how many misconceptions he had about the Buddha Dhamma but in the end still tried to convert me ... die hard fella :lol:
