Kids Of Different Religions Describe God

– I think gods in Buddhist fart. – I’m Sara, and I am 10 years old. – I’m four and I’m Tobie. – By law, I am Jewish, but I don’t know if I necessarily believe in it. – I believe in Buddhism. – I believe in God.

– For me, it’s a really big maybe. Part of me believes in God a lot, and part of me definitely doesn’t. Because maybe there is someone upstairs, making great things happen and sprinkling magic on the world. And then you see such bad stuff happen and you see kids get cancer,

You doubt or you question God. – We have this thing called Guanyin, it’s kind of like God, but it’s like Chinese. – In my religion, we call him Allah. – He helps people. – God is love. – I think God has a sweet, soft voice.

– I think he would sound like, “Hi” (laughs). – I think since he’s lived so long, it’s kind of washed out, “I should make “good things happen to the world.” This sounds so creepy, like a horror movie. – I think it sounds loud. He sounds like really kind, I think. “Well hello” (laughs).

– You can see him on the ground on his legs and on his feet. – I think God is in the sky. – I pray to the Guanyin to bring us good luck and support my family. – Usually what I wish for, I’d like to spend time with my mom all day.

– I wanna have confidence in God, if they control all of us, I wanna have confidence that I don’t need to pray and tell them to do it. I think they should make great things happen and really prevent the really bad, terrible things.

– One time I went outside and I prayed to God so I could have flowers. – If there is a God, what is it? What do they look like? – God looks like a person. – Maybe God’s a woman or maybe God doesn’t identify as a gender. – They’re usually gold or white.

– I think God will have green eyes. – Why do we always think of him wearing a hoodie? – I’m drawing him clothes, I don’t really know if he has clothes because I can’t draw him naked. – He’s wearing his masculine God t-shirt. Gotta put that God on there.

– Put some jewelry on his head. – He’s in his hoodie so we’re not gonna be able to see his hair, guys. I don’t think he has hair, I think it’s hard to keep having hair if you’ve been alive for this many millions of years. He’s kinda self-conscious about not having hair.

– This one’s shaped like a monkey. – I just would hope that he would look like a regular person. – God is a big head on legs (laughs). – His hands are very long and big. – I now how to make hands, really. Like this circle, because my hands are circles, see?

– I don’t think he looks like anyone I know. – I think he wears those swag green pants, very cool green pants, make him a little more colorful. He’s got those sick Nikes on. – He has a beard. – He has orange hair and green eyes (laughs).

– He’s big and he always sits down. – He looks kinda funny. – He has a blue shirt and blue pants, and very hairy arms. – I just would like you to think of God, a man or a woman or whatever you want to think of God as, happiness.

You should have big smile when you think of God. And wearing those, those sick Nikes, you know. – Thank you for letting me be in this world. – The world goes around because all these different people have different beliefs in God, and I love that, but I don’t think

That their beliefs should cause wars. This could be somewhat fiction. This could be somewhat man-made. I love that everyone has a different view of God and different beliefs in God, but I don’t think it should cause so much commodity or war, I really don’t.

– Hey, Unsolved is on a new channel, and now your part. – [Together] Subscribe here. – That was my part.

Making Interfaith Dialogue Work | Telo Rinpoche

His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks about inter-religious harmony or inter-religious dialogue, Making Interfaith Dialogue Work and I think it is very important for us to have this open communication, open dialogue. When I say “dialogue,” it doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to sit down officially, formally and have some kind of a dialogue.

But a human-to-human level dialogue, understanding, friendship, exchange of thoughts, exchange of ideas. And also getting to know each other, getting to know different backgrounds, getting to know them as individuals, I think this is one of the key methods in maintaining stability, harmony and friendship.

In Kalmykia, for example, we have what we call the “Inter-religious Council,” where the Muslims, the Christian Orthodox and Buddhists, the three of them are represented in this religious council. And we have very frequent gatherings. Of course, we have differences, different views on religious traditions,

Different views on political issues, and different views on social issues as well. But nevertheless, if we remained isolated from each other because he or she has a certain belief, spiritually, politically, economically and socially, then there’s no way that we can develop and work together.

So it is important for us to sit down together, have tea, have a basic conversation and exchange these different views. And through these –you would be surprised by it – sincere dialogues and communication, how much we have been able to achieve, it is unbelievable.

And I think, as you mentioned, Kalmykia has no Buddhist neighbors. To the North, East and West it is all Christian Orthodox, to the South we have the Muslims. So, we have been able to maintain stability, harmony, and friendship through this open dialogue between people, between governments, between administrations.

And mainly between the religious leaders or the religious communities. So, I think we have set a good example to the people as well. And as a matter of fact, I think it was about five or six years ago, Kalmykia was praised by the Russian Federation’s President

As being one of the most harmonious communities spiritually. That was a very big statement for us. And a big achievement for us as well.
