Buddhists don’t talk about blasphemy

Letters : Buddhists don’t talk about blasphemy | The Jakarta Post

Life is suffering. And suffering comes from desire; the desire, for example, of wanting to be “respected” by others. A true Buddhist does not talk about “blasphemy” as this is an irrelevant notion in Buddhism.

There was never any enlightened soul who instructed others to build holy temples, and if these temples and statues exist, they are anything but the essence of Buddhism.
