I Don't Care

It's not easy to be a Buddhist. We have to face millions of non-Buddhists who think their God is superior to any other god. They don't even know we don't worship any god !

I Don't Care

Why should you care which god I supplicate
Are you hoping it is better
I put the wine, fruits and chicken
In front of your house than on the altar?
Why should I?
To tell the truth I don’t worship any
Though I respect many.
Are you jealous?
I have no guilty conscience
Nor have I anything to lose.
Therefore I have nothing to fear.
How can fear arise when you don’t care?
Let the serpent bites me to death
Let the devils take me to hell.
They will have to release me
When they reach hell port
For surely, I don’t have a hell’s passport.
Which way are you heading?
Let’s hope we shall meet again.
There is a way out
A perfect world is waiting for you
No, you can’t go there by space shuttle
Nor can any agency bring you there.
That power lies within you
A strong man knows when he is beaten,
A wise man knows when he is wrong.
Fools! You have been drunk too long.
Wake up and work out your way
The way that leads to Nirvana.
Don’t say you don’t know the way
Have you ever asked?

I too am a very religious man and wonder why others worry so over what I believe or do not believe. God bless.

Utah: Please go on believing, but many of these believers spend time to wallop others in the different camps. Jealousy? Fear?
