The Tibetan Buddhists’ life consists of constant religious observances to obtain a better reincarnation. The believer is constantly spinning prayers wheels, going on pilgrimages, meditating, prostrating, using prayer beads and going on monastic isolations. All this to build up merit to improve their karma to gain a better reincarnation, and – if possible – nirvana.
This kind of devotion is not uncommon.
The religious systems of our world are all schemes to obtain merit with God.
Whether you’re Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, a spiritualist, or whatever, you seek – by your own works – to get God to credit your salvation account.
Religion is spelt D.O. You DO things to get God’s approval.
