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

Peaceful religion ever

I'm surprised my religion is here!

I think buddhisum hindusuim and jainsum are tied

2 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.

I'm proud to be an Hindu

3 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.

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

Let go base religion. Level of satisfaction is highest with let go rules..and nature...

4 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 :'(

5 Islam

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 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 is the worst religion, and has one of the most terrorist attacks.

Stop saying Islam is a non peaceful religion (to the people commenting). Our religion says that you shouldn’t kill. Maybe take a look at the Quran instead of accusing things.

9 Taoism Taoism
10 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!

The Contenders

11 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.

12 The International Society for Krishna Consciousness
13 Zen Buddhism
14 Aboriginal Australian
15 Satanism

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

Not only has a satanist never killed anyone (that was almost always the D.H.U.A framing them), they actively oppose the most violent industrialized entities in the whole world. Peace be satanism; peace be the world! - airbb
