Buddhism in Eyes of Intellectuals

No forced conversion
“It was never, however, the Buddhist way to proselytise - in the sense of forcing ideas and beliefs upon an unwilling audience, much less to exert pressure of any kind, or any kind of flattery, deceit or cajolery, to win adherence to one's own point of view.  Buddhist missionaries have never competed for converts in the marketplace.”
