Buddhism in Eyes of Intellectuals

No fanaticism
“Of Buddhism alone can it be affirmed it is free from all fanaticism.  Its aim being to produce in every man a thorough internal transforming by self-conquest, how can it have recourse to might or money or even persuasion for effecting conversion?  The Buddha has only shown the way to salvation, and it is left to each individual to decide for himself if he would follow it.”  
Prof. Lakshmi Narasu, "The Essence of Buddhism"
