Judging by the latest TV advert for Coca-Cola ( ‘You got the Love ” ) , ‘His Holiness’ (LOL) Mr Lama and Coke must be employing the same PR company. The complacent, ‘feel-good’ triteness is uncannily similar, and equally pernicious and diversionary…
Sorry Mr Lama, I DO NOT ACCEPT that war, poverty, oppression and corporate greed ”springs only from myself”, any more than I believe that a fizzy drink can bring me ”both peace and joy.”
(….and by the way, I urge anyone who has a sentimental wish to ”free Tibet” or restore its theocracy to read the history of the cruel and exploitative regime presented in the articles here)…. http://www.michaelparenti.org/Tibet.html
Quotations from Friedrich Nietzsche’ ‘Beyond Good and Evil’ and ‘The Anti-Christ’
“The Buddha’s passive nihilism is a sign of weakness.”
Freud On Religion :
“The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life.” – Sigmund Freud

Voltaire on Religion
”The first clergyman was the first rascal who met the first fool”
”On religion, many are destined to reason wrongly: others not to reason at all: and others to persecute those who do reason.” ~ Voltaire
All religions are equally sublime to the ignorant, useful to the politician, and ridiculous to the philosopher.
~ Lucretius 94-49 BC
