Greetings. I am a Buddhist in Tokyo, Japan. I am starting this thread as a place for interfaith dialogue, centred mostly on Buddhism and Islam. I approach this community with an attitude of respect and shared humanity, with a desire to learn more from you and with you with an open mind, not to change you. Although not a Muslim, I am not concerned with preaching, converting, or changing your minds. I will be checking this thread from time to time, so if I don't reply immdiately, please be patie
