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.

I love Buddhism

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.

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.

I support all relegions except Islam.

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

4 Jainism

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 :'(

The Contenders

11 The International Society for Krishna Consciousness
12 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.

13 Aboriginal Australian
14 Zen Buddhism
15 Satanism

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

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