Extracting a quote from Master Sheng Yen:
Religious followers believe their own religion is the best and their ideas and way of thinking or their religious precepts are the most important. They believe they can criticise, saying what is good and bad because it is their belief. The question is whether religious followers should force their standards and beliefs on others, and use them to scare them or threaten them.
Buddhists, at least, should not.
I see myself in the above situation.
After learning some Buddhist principles, I have a tendency to look at others with a critical eye.
In fact, I would say I become more intolerant and impatient, especially to my own family. Maybe I had good intentions - hoping that my family members will have less negative karma and adopt Buddhist values. However, my method of doing it was wrong.
