Bible Reading and Preaching.

If I tell Bible reading and preaching people to stop and tell them it is only a waste of time and energy and efforts.

Isn't it the most compassionate act?

vertical line Whatever you do is part of your learning lesson to discover yourself ..........there is no good or bad , no right or wrong , no true or false in Buddhism . In Buddhism you should explore your reason to act , your desire to act , your emotion while acting , your emotion after your action and explore yourselve with your action ...................thats Buddhism so is not the question of 'compasionate" or not ............as Buddhism is beyond knowledge of compasionate ...............is all about YOU and YOURSELVE .

.........

Why are you in the Zen forum, thinking and talking?

The most compassionate act is listening, and letting others know you listened.

Otherwise you're like the Bible people, preaching and preaching. (Of which I am also very, very guilty.)
