Top Ten Most Peaceful Religions


The Top Ten

1 Buddhism

I believe consciousness and presence are two important factors for any action. If a person is conscious it is very difficult for him or her to indulge in any harmful activities. Despite being Hindu I think Buddhists are way more strong believer of Karma

I'm surprised my religion is here!

Peaceful religion ever

"peaceful,fearless and loving,these are charactheristics of a noble person" Buddha

2 Jainism

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

Really all jain are very peaceful.

Most peaceful as trying to do not any harm by intention to any leaving organism by any how and attend nirvana for himself by leave everything.. That is Jainism..
Proud to be jain...

I am a Hindu but I have so much respect for Jains. If I made this list I'd put Jainism as #1, with Hinduism (specifically Hare Krishna) following.

3 Hinduism

You have the option to believe whatever you want to. You even have the choice to be an atheist and a Hindu. It doesn't get any better than that to be honest.

Well bit's better than islam to be honest


Mother of all religions is hinduism.also hindus always wanted peace and wanted to live a peaceful life but due to some islamic extremism we have to defend ourselves. We are peaceful that's not mean that we are weak. We are also very powerful. Actually our religion name is not hinduism its sanatana dharma I am very proud to see all the top peaceful religions are from india. Proud to be Indian. Jai hind

4 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

Bless you all, whether you believe followers are peaceful or not. Have a wonderful day!

5 Paganism

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.

6 The International Society for Krishna Consciousness
7 Zen Buddhism
8 Islam

Islam may be a peaceful religion, but the people those who are following Islam are not the best examples till now to be said as peaceful religion. Islam can become peaceful if some of the followers stops terrorist activities.

Islam teaches the best way, don't judge islam if you don't know islam at all, learn it first then comments, don't talk like you guys know everything about islam, just because someone islam make mistakes then you guys blame the religion. How pathetic you guys,blam the person not the religion.

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?

Islam is the most peaceful religion on earth. It always has been and it always will be as the lord [Allah] is peaceful and all prophets of this religion were peaceful and spiritual.

9 Sikhism

Sikhism is the most peaceful there has never been a religious attacks from Sikhs, Buddhism should not be first because of the Myanmar genocides from Buddhists, Islam promotes cutting hands of, and Sikhism is the most reasonable because it accepts everyone and feeds 37,000,000 each year. Tell me which religion is more peaceful

10 Satanism

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

The Contenders

11 Judaism

Very peaceful

12 Vaishnavism
13 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 :'(

14 Shaivism
15 Sufism
16 Wicca Wicca
17 Zoroastrianism
