Why I love Buddhists.

Buddhist couple vows to stay within 15 feet of each other...always.

I'm not sure I could do that, but theres something beautiful and pure about what they've decided to do. Last year I visited a Buddhist temple a few times and fell in love. It was so moving to see people enter into the temple with such reverence and respect. The kind I wish I had when I entered a church, a place to worship God. They took it so seriously. They truly believed in Buddha and what he could do for them. It made me stop and wonder why I didn't act like they did when I was at church. I talked to a few Buddhist and their outlook on life was so positive. It hurt because I wanted that but after researching more about the roots of Buddhism it doesn't make sense. But at the same time it does.

Its a very giving, loving, kind religion. It always intrigues me.

This is a writers account of what happened when his wife and him tried what the Buddhist did: Here.
