  1. Hi, I am making a catalogue of AUTHENTIC Buddhist quotes for as a project.

  12. For those of you well experienced in Buddhism and the other arts. I'd like to open a discussion about the differences between the systems. What similarities have people noticed and what differences. This paper gives some examples - Daoyin is mentioned as being the same as pranayama for example or that Hatha Yoga came from Buddhism. Would you agree?[1]=
