A few days ago, it was my birthday and I received many birthday wishes from my new friends in Facebook. It was really sweet, heart-warming and totally unexpected since I don’t know most of these friends in real life. So in honor of my new friends, in this post I would like to share some verses and/or quotes about friendship in various religions and by famous public figures.
Most of us are familiar with the story of Moses in the Abrahamic religions (i.e. Judaism, Christianity and Islam). What many do not realize is that there are also several characters in world mythologies and even a historical figure that have similar stories to the story of Moses.
I am sharing these religious quotes about love directly from various holy scriptures as comparative religious studies and hopefully also to spread interreligious understanding and religious tolerance. Judge for yourselves which religious teachings are true or false, and which religious people actually follow their own scripture or not. I personally think if we could follow all these teachings below the world would definitely be a better place. Feel free to copy and paste the images on any social media platform you like. Peace, shalom, salam, namaste
There are so many ancient flood stories from around the world similar to the story of Noah. Actually there are not only 15 flood myths but there are hundreds! However in this post I will only be sharing 15 representatives of these (compacted) flood stories from the 5 major religions, i.e. JudeoChristianity – Islam religions, that is of course: the story of Noah, from Hindu religion and Buddhist “religion”. Then we will continue with flood myths from the representatives of the 5 “continents” i.e. Middle East (ancient Mesopotamian areas and ancient Egypt), Europe (ancient Greece and Scandinavia/Norse mythologies), MesoAmerica, Asia (ancient China), Africa and Australia/Pacific.
