    In one country (Japan), it is “Born Shinto, live nonreligious, wed Christian and die Buddhist.” The Christian wedding is done for its photo opportunities ("optics" as they say) than for any religious overtones.
    And as for the end...it is somewhat linked to the survival of the religion itself: Zen no more: Japan shuns its Buddhist traditions as temples close

    People mature by experience and circumstance. People mature from trauma, religion, conditioning and in some cases cultural training.
    When we understand, we grow. Age just changes the skin. But experience; that changes everything.

    :hello:That is quite so in general: it is interesting that you responded perfectly.

    2. While I do not disagree your words, yet I wish you consider meaning of equanimity in terms of religion - it is quite wide and broad in link
    Equanimity - Wikipedia.
    It is mind boggling. Monks suggest terrific mental & physical exercise - not just only accept thing as they are. To get into that mode one has to equip himself or herself with so many virtues.
    Thanks and warm Regards.

    Interesting that he (or she) always hopeful looking forward to see identical flawed & bizarre partner.
    3. It is believed that there are at any point of time seven humans identical present in the world.

    Click down-arrow to scroll down/up to see the rest of the picture on your screen. If you are just interested in the text:
    "I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too"
