Many years ago I was invited to sit in to listen to an elderly Buddhist give a talk in a small worn out looking house. There were no chairs to sit on; about ten of us were just sitting on an old carpeted living room floor. When entering that house a woman greeted me with a hot cup of tea and told me I could join the others in the other room, which of course was that living room. When the elderly Asian man started giving his speech there was an Asian woman translating what he was saying into English, which I really liked seeing I wouldn't have been able to understand what he was saying but, even if there wouldn't have been that translator I believe I would have still felt the peace I felt that evening, seeing it was flooding all around me.
The message that that elderly Buddhist said that truly stood out to me was when he said something like, "We as Buddhists don't condemn others for what they've chosen to believe when it comes to religion, their spiritual beliefs, or try to convert them over to our beliefs, we show love and compassion for all sentient beings."
When I left from there that night that peaceful energy that was flooding all around me, left with me, which was with me for days on end.
