This post is not meant to offend anyone, it is simply a question to satisfy my curiosity :-)
So a lil personal background for clarity: I am a spiritual Hindu, but I practice Buddhism as well. Many Hindus believe that the Buddha is an avatar of Lord Vishnu, so many practice both or a combination of both Hinduism & Buddhism. I do respect all religions & philosophies and am of the belief that people should freely be able to practice whatever they wish (within reason, of course! I don't advocate things like human/animal sacrifices...). I also went to Catholic school for 12 yrs (yes, the whole stereotype -- school girl uniform, nuns with rulers...) so I am also quite familiar with Christianity in the Catholic sense.
My question: I get many emails from people that end in "Jesus loves you" or "May Jesus Shine his Light on You" or similar sayings.
Now none of this offends me, in all honesty (with no offense intended) - I simply ignore it. But what if I responded with like sayings like may "Lord Ganesha shower you with blessings" or may "Lord Vishnu grant all your wishes" ...
Would that offend you? Would this be considered offensive? Any thoughts? I'm just curious :-)
