Intro to Buddhism, part 2: Symbols and traditions


Buddha statue Every wonder how Buddhists use those beautiful prayer flags? Or why some Buddhas look cheery and others look solemn? Our Intro to Buddhism series continues with a look at symbols and traditions, plus an overview of key holidays. Read the whole story

The Path to Peace

The lotus flower, rooted in mud, grows and blossoms above the swamp in beauty and purity. This Buddhist image conveys peace in the midst of life’s hard realities. Many long to be like the lotus, to escape pain, to transcend trials, to find happiness and inner peace.

But in the end, even the lotus flower will fade, rot, and become part of the swamp from which it grew. Ironically, that is an accurate picture of the goal of Buddhism, which is to eliminate the “self” or the ego. Peace in Buddhism means being one with the universe, but it also means your hopes, dreams, longings, and desires have to be curtailed—even your desire for peace. Jesus offers a peace that is complete, perfect, and full. The Prince of Peace came to put us back into a right relationship with our Creator God. He gives true peace, the longing of our souls.

The Bible says, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.” The lotus flower might be a beautiful symbol, but it represents a belief system that does not offer true peace. Throughout the world, SEND workers bring Jesus’ offer of peace to Buddhists. Here, you'll find their stories and prayer and other resources so that you, too, can be involved in helping Buddhists journey the path to peace.
