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 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...

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

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

I'm proud to be an Hindu

It's the father of Buddhism, jainsim, Sikhism etc.

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

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 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.

Islam is the most peaceful religion of the world without a doubt but, just because of the tragedies and incidents that are happening in the name of Islam have made it looked the opposite. Islam never allows to harm anyone (not just a Muslim but "anyone") without having any authentic reason. Allah says: “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind.” (Qur’an, 5:32). Now let me conclude it with the beautiful concept of war that Islam teaches the Muslims. Holy Prophet PBUH says: "O people! I charge you with ten rules; learn them well... for your guidance in the battlefield! Do not commit treachery, or deviate from the right path. You must not mutilate dead bodies. Neither kill a child, nor a woman, nor an aged man. Bring no harm to the trees, nor burn them with fire, especially those which are fruitful. Slay not any of the enemy’s flock, save for your food. You are ...more

9 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

Sikhism is the most peaceful, tolerant, human & nature loving religion ever. Most violent one is Hinduism, just read history since they are ruling India how innocent christians, muslims, dalits, sikhs and other minorities have been burnt alive by these monsters.

13 Zoroastrianism
14 Wicca Wicca
15 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 :'(
