Buddhism and Naturism:
“Who told you that you were naked?” This question continues to be written and rewritten for thousands of years in every Christian and Hebrew / Jewish Bible throughout time.
Adam and Eve answered that it was the devil who told them that they were nude. Since the inception of the parable, the idea of being nude has been viewed as an embarrassment, or a reason for individuals to feel ashamed of their bodies.
It was a shift in thinking that being nude was no longer the most natural thing on the planet. Adam and Eve only became ashamed after someone or something told them that it wasn’t right. When religions throughout the ages have told folks that it’s unnatural to be naked in public, most folks simply took it as fact. In today’s age, exhibitionists are detained on the spot for appearing nude in public.
It’s no wonder that there are now those who are raging against such a shift in thinking.

Many Buddhists have become naturists, that is another name for nudists.
Most Buddhists do not use religion as their reasons for wanting to walk around with outside their clothing on. The thought of being naked is a natural way of life to them, irrespective of what the Bible or society says about it. Their way of thinking is more about freedom of speech and expression.
To Buddhists, a society that says something so natural is erroneous, is simply one other way to exert control over how people live their lives. Being naked for lots of people is more standard to them than wearing garments.
They feel much freer when they are not so encumbered by clothing that remind them of the oppressive climate that started over two thousand years past from one kind of idea.
Hindus in India still perform many skyclad rituals where the man is bare. Hinduism is among the oldest faiths that’s still being taught in the world today. It’s the closest religion to true spirituality than some other religion.
It’s no surprise that this type of faith would view nudity as the perfect human state. It really is the closest to God that most folks can get because it shows When I was in my very early teens I used to strip off every time my parents were out of the house that dwells inside of the human flesh. A spirit without fears, or embarrassment, or shame is a soul that’s progressed beyond the human form, while still in the body.
To wear clothes on a person is like covering up the real spirit within. When someone dies and drops their physical form, the spirit is nude in front of God, just as they were before entering the Earth’s airplane. In the spirit world, spirits can walk around with or without clothes. There are no oppressive rules that spirits must follow because they have returned back to their authentic selves.
Becoming a naturist is a way for someone to turn back into their true selves, which can be the spirit who lives in self-assurance with whom they really are underneath all of the facades. Jainism is another faith that teaches the spirit to advance past the human way of thinking. To be oppressed will be to stifle the independence of the soul to attain divine consciousness.
Oppression thwarts the spirits path to their divine nature. To perform the rites in clothes, would take away from their true message.
Wiccans performed most of the rituals in the nude due to the rite of passage rules of the witchcraft handbook, which said that all rituals would be performed in the nude, in order to free themselves from their oppressors.
Islamic frown upon nudity in public. Their rules are stringent and binding in regards to nudity. Islamic girls are not permitted to reveal any parts of their skin when in public. The same goes for men and kids.
Men do not have to dress from head to toe, but they may be merely to be seen nude before their wives while in the privacy in their own homes.
There are many clothing optional beaches where individuals are allowed to run around on the sand naked. Individuals who show up in clothes because of humiliation, shortly start to feel more comfortable and they’ll shed their clothing.
Nudists who inhabit bare beaches are trying to teach others about the value of being who they are without all of the encumbrances of societies principles. Appearing nude in public has nothing related to sexual or lustful goals.
It truly is a way of life, and a freedom of expression. Naturists teach others how to be comfortable in each others presence by looking beyond the fact the man is nude. People will begin to feel a sense of belonging when they see that each man is exactly the same underneath the clothes.
Liberty without ruling is the perfect state that any person can find themselves in. They will have reached true spiritual enlightenment when they can live their lives without fear.
