Top Ten Most Peaceful Religions

The Top Ten

1 Buddhism

Buddha teaches peace and gives a vision of seeing reality. He teaches how to see the things in a way without any milestone and tell everything is within us, he teaches believe in ourselves. Make the branch of love continuous.

Most other religions spreader and teach by force or killing other religions. For example we lost huge knowledge by vandalism of University Nayland a which was a Buddhist university gathered lother of knowledge. In Sri Lanka missionaries came to the island such as Francis xavior who spread cruelty for spreading religion. Buddha invite people to listen and understand the teaching.

Peaceful my ass. Buddhists are actually the most cunning people. Not necessarily talking about those who chose Buddhism in their spiritual journey but home grown Buddhists. They've once again shown how cunning they are by disguising themselves as Muslims in the Sri lankan attacks. They not only attack Muslims but Christians too but who's gonna take heed if everyone is blindly blaming Muslim people all the bloody time.

Mindfulness is the core teaching of Buddha.His teachings are life oriented and practical still now.

2 Hinduism

Hinduism, like Buddhism, Jainism, and other Eastern religions, teach you Karma (treat people the way you want to be treated) and if in doubt follow your inner consciousness to determine what is right and wrong, not some misleading Abrahamic prophet. because of this, its only factual that Abrahamic religions are full of misunderstanding and misuse of power which has, and STILL leads to violence in the sole name of religion.

Hinduism is the best religion because hinduism always respect other religion except Islam

We Hindus respect all religions...we respect Islam also..our holy book never said this to disrespect Islam.

Buddhism is son of Hindusim, Buddhism founder Gauthama Siddhartha was born Hindu, Buddhism should be number 1 too

3 Islam

Islam has been misinterpreted in so many ways and its sad that muslims are mostly to blame for that. Islam truly does preach peace and love. The Quran says "If you kill one human, it is as if you have killed the entire humanity, and if you save one person, it is as if you saved the entire humanity. "
Islam does not preach killing non-muslims, heck it even says that during war do not harm crops, trees, animals, women, children, those who surrender. And treat prisoners of war with respect.
Its sad that Islam is portrayed in such a way but no doubt it is a group of Muslims who misinterpreted it which resulted into this. If only they realise that Islam is so much more than praying 5 times a day, fasting, hajj. These deeds won't matter at all on the day of judgement if muslims have hurt other people. The Quran says that the only sin that is unforgivable other thsn shirk is hurting someone's feelings, nobody can enter heaven if they have hurt someone (and the person didn't forgive ...more

Islam derived from an arabic word slim which means peace. Salam also denotes peace. Non muslim may blame islam for terrorism because they don't know islam. May Allah grant peace for them also.

Islam is the most peaceful religion,with out that,everything is fake

Oh ya? Islam is a peaceful religion? How about those 3,000 people that died on 9/11? Isis? London bombing? Can someone remind me what religion isis belongs to please?

Please understand that not all of followers of Islam are terrorists - ElSherlock

4 Jainism

Why is Jainism below Islam
Instead they should be on top
Comments a Hindu

Jainism is most peaceful religion of world. Followed by Buddhism.

Being a Hindu, I could have voted for Hinduism. I just can't get over the fact of how peaceful Jain's are though.

I'm Athiest and Vegan so Jainism is the only Religion that makes sense to me...

5 Baha'i

Reading their scriptures and authoritative commentaries makes it clear that a peaceful world, united under one God, is the goal of this religion. In the face of unmitigated persecution for 40 years, Baha'u'llah, founder of the Baha'i faith told a British scholar in the 1890s: "These fruitless strifes, these ruinous wars shall pass away, and the 'Most GreatPeace' shall come."

A wonderful religion with the most amazing followers
I live in Iran, I'm an atheist, but I know some Baha'i and they are the most peaceful people on earth,
they suffer a lot, some people don't know anything about it, and the children read in the school that Baha'i is a faith created by the British!
But they never give up, they go through all of these, and they are still the nicest people you know.
My Baha'i brothers and sisters, I love you, I love you so much, you're amazing, I suffer as you suffer, I cry as you cry and know this, even if the world end and everything turn into ashes, I never stop loving you :'(

6 Church of England
7 Judaism

Very peaceful

It is the best religion ever

8 Christianity

Jesus Christ is the One who taught to "love your enemies". Indeed, despite having an impressive 2.2 billion followers, Christians are persecuted worldwide. This is because Christianity is not a religion of expansion and violence but a way of life that preaches unconditional love towards others. - 4894938

I don't know, the Crusades weren't very peaceful...

Christians seem to love rebuking and arguing all the time, but in truth, it's a very beautiful, peaceful religion. It's a shame we have developed such a bad image. - keycha1n

Christ may have been peaceful, but his followers aren't.

9 Taoism

Altho religions may preach peace, we know that almost all major religions were involved in wars, and no, they were not all defensive wars as apologists like to claim. It's ludicrous to believe, for example, that the massive expansive battles of early Islam were all defensive. You don't grow massive caliphates just by fighting defensive wars. It is the same with most other major religions. Judaism has been pretty peaceful for the past 2,000 years, but just like Islam, there were a lot of wars in its early days, altho admittedly not as much as Islam & Christianity.

10 Sikhism

Sikhism is a religion based on God existing in everyone and of universal brotherhood. Sikhism has always protected and not actively caused aggression against others

Sikhism is Religion of Love, Goodwill &Peace towards all Creation including Humankind.It cherishes Equality & Equal Opportunity for all irrespective of race, religions, gender, ethnicity, nationality or socioeconomic status.

Best of the best

? Lutheranism

The Contenders

11 Aboriginal Australian
12 The International Society for Krishna Consciousness
13 Zen Buddhism
14 Paganism

We promote harmony, towards nature as we are part of it. This harmony with the universe gives me faith, and the universe rewards me with luck. Nature, universe and it's elements are our gods and goddesses, as both male and female are equally important. We accept the duality of man, we are not a "religion of light", we are a religion of humanity. Equally light and dark, for one cannot exist without the other

Paganism, with no hierarchy, is a very peaceful and one with the earth religion. Paganism celebrates the fact that, we do not rule the earth, but are a part of it. Paganism looks down on the abuse of animals. It focuses on the law of "never hurting anyone." That means animals and humans.

Depends on which you follow as well as in which ways if necessary. Compare Alto Saxon (Germanic) Paganism to Roman.

How about An' ye harm none, do what ye will.
How many religions have beliefs like that.
It wasn't just women with warts and cats that were tortured and died. It was also Pagans.

15 Satanism

Satanism, the world's most misunderstood and wrongly accused religion.
never in history has Satanism been involved in wars, terror and mass killings like Islam and Christianity.

and ironically when christians are confronted with questions and ideas different than their religion they turn mean and foul-mouthed.

God is love the devil is hate Catholics fear them others/other religions fear them
They are to
Evil/mean to save this damn world

Get that off this list for example hello demons/devils not fun nor inspirational

This and Hinduism are the only two most peaceful religions I've ever heard of. That is why I'm a Satanist myself.

16 Zoroastrianism
17 Vaishnavism

It is the top most peaceful religion of the world specially the KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS FOLLOWR.The never heart any entity till an ant.They are fully vegiterian never take any non-vage food,not do any type of intoxication,never play or take part in any gambling,and never have any irrative sex.And distributing delesus PRASADAM all the people and million of people got daily PRASADAM cost of free.There is always a large crowd around any ISKON TEMPLE they spacially servive on PRASADAM.These secipal principle makes life of a person very peaceful. I am very thankful to SRILLA PRABHUPADA GURU to spread this most peaceful religion all over the world.I Confiddently tell that no any religion is peaceful as this.This brought many terrorist type,non aimed people to right path.If any have doubt then search ISKON on goggle,all things you got,or meet a people that this following you know all about this. ~ HARE KRISHNA

18 Shaivism
19 Wicca
20 Sufism
21 Roman Catholicism

Honestly Catholicism is very peaceful along with Zoroastrianism, Sikhism, Mormon, Baha’i, Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, Jehovah, Hinduism & Jainism. If you think about it most religions are peace oriented. People who kill or whatever that belong to some religion but religion is for peace, that person is not following religion, so it’s not that the religion is bad, the person is bad

22 Shinto
23 Jehovah's Witnesses
