There was a video posted by the COS saying that their religion is compatible with all others. I find this blanket statement to be false and misleading. I appreciate all contributions and corrections, as I am not a Buddhist or Daoist. I’ve studied religion for several years, and what I found about Buddhism is that they believe the truth path to enlightenment usually entails meditation with an end result being Nirvana. As another example, some Buddhists believe suffering is caused by craving or attachments to worldly pleasures of all kinds. This is often expressed as a deluded clinging to a certain sense of existence, to selfhood, or to the things or people that we consider the cause of happiness or unhappiness. Obviously, this isn’t the same thing as “engrams” or “thetans”. Daoism is more earth-based and neutral. An example of their beliefs would be in ancient Taoist texts, wu wei is associated with water through its yielding nature. Water is soft and weak, but it can move earth and carve stone. Taoist philosophy proposes that the universe works harmoniously according to its own ways. When someone exerts his will against the world, he disrupts that harmony. Taoism does not identify man’s will as the root problem. Rather, it asserts that man must place his will in harmony with the natural universe. I’m not trying to insult anyone or be derogatory towards Scientologists themselves. I don’t care what anyone believes. I just don’t like liars.
