The Cup Story

Here's what i read this weekend.

A frenchman saw a cup and said "This is a tasse."
An Indonesian came and said "No, this is a cawan."
Then a Chinese man saw and said "This is a pei."
An Englishman then came and said " No, this is a cup and i can prove it."
He brings a dictionary and says "This will prove that it's called a cup."
The Indonesian and frenchman likewise brought their dictionaries as evidence.
The Chinese man said "The Chinese is the oldest civilization and our dictionary says it's a pei."

In the midst of the argument, Buddha came and drank from the cup.
He says that it didn't matter whether it was a tasse, cawan, pei or a cup, most important is its purpose.

Lesson: we must learn to respect other religions and it didn't matter what religion you are, the main thing is that religion teaches us the same values on how to be a good person.

I know where this came from
The rope bun right
Anyway no religion teaches bad things
It is humans that are the devil meaner than the devil himself

Every religions in the world have the same teachings and when interpreted the meaning are the same. So, it does not matter what religion you practice; what matters most is what have you learned from it.
