I'm doing a survey on what the word 'Buddhism' makes people think about, ie, what do they associate with 'Buddhism'?
I would greatley appreciate any input, and also if you could say whether you are religous, non religious, or spiritual (believe there is 'something' that is not taught by the major religions).
Feel free to be as brief or as in depth as you like, the important thing is you are honest and put what first comes to mind without researching further.
Thank you very much for your time.

Kindness, generosity, respect for life, respect for others.
Vegan food, sandals, smiles and carrot cake.
Green, non-judgmental, healthy and patient.
A little bit boring, wishy washy and humourless, however.
