Title A Reflection of the Inclusive Attitude towards Homosexuality from the Buddhist Perspective
 
Creator Cheng, Fung Kei
 
Subject Anti-discrimination

Sexual orientation
Social inclusiveness
 
Description Although homosexuality is controversial, particularly in conservative communities, many Buddhists accept those whose sexual orientation is different from the majority. In light of scriptures, the Buddhist wisdom reveals compassion towards sentient beings, regardless of sex, age, and social class. This study discusses the Buddhist views on sexual minority, and on how Buddhists react to this challenge. It reveals the significance of inclusiveness in contemporary society.
