Fascinating maps of the spread of Buddhist teachings of self-liberation throughout Asia.
Starting 500 years before the birth of Jesus, Buddhism spread through vast oceans of humanity without a single crucifixion, without a single beheading or lashing or stoning, without a single immolation or pogrom, without a single battle or crusade or “holy war” to get its point across. It never ever relied on the tip of a sword or the barrel of a gun, or even the threat of punishment — whether temporal or eternal.
Pretty interesting stuff, if you pause to consider it for a moment.
Should be Page One news in every newspaper in the world.
