Can A Buddhist Ever Be Offended?
If a Buddhist was ever offended, they would not be Buddhist; they would be an ordinary, religious person taking comfort in sentimentality. Buddhism is not a belief system as it is realisation of our reality; as such, we cannot be offended at the misunderstanding of others. A Buddhist should know the very nature of reality, and whatever illusions obscure that reality, and transcend these with compassion.
Being offended creates equivalent karma,
as we will continue to be offended,
because we have not transcended the idea of self.
Karma is precise,
and intention is very powerful.
Our karmic response can go one of two ways:
round in circles, or brought to a happy ending.
