Buddhism is not a way of harmony and cosmic unity, as Westerners tend to think. Although Buddhism is a rapidly rising religion in the West, few Westerners know what Buddhism is like from the inside. Steve, who made the journey from Buddhism to Christ, explains the Buddhist mind-set and worldview, and makes useful points of comparison.

Many people who are drawn to Buddhism today are seeking for spiritual knowledge as opposed to simple faith or sectarian belief. Hermann Beckh had a profound personal connection to the Buddhist path and the noble truths it contains, yet he was also dedicated to a radical renewal of Christianity. Assimilating the groundbreaking research of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), Beckh’s comprehension of Buddhism was neither limited to historical documents nor scholarly research in philology. Rather, from his inner meditation and spiritual understanding, he saw the earlier great world religions as waymarks for humanity’s evolving consciousness. In the modern world, the apprehension of Christianity needed to be grounded firmly in a universally-valid, inner cognition and experience: ‘In this light, knowledge becomes life.’ Hermann Beckh – Professor of Tibetan Studies and Sanskrit in Berlin, subsequently a founding priest of The Christian Community – first published this mature study in 1925. Having already produced the comprehensive Buddha’s Life and Teaching in 1916, Beckh’s sweeping perspectives combined with his extensive academic knowledge provided a unique grounding for authoring this work. As he notes, From Buddha to Christ follows a path of development, ‘both of method and goal’. Thus, studying this book is itself a path of knowledge and potential initiation. Beckh’s universal insights remain relevant – and if anything have gained in value – to twenty-first century readers. This edition features an additional essay, ‘Steiner and Buddha: Neo-Buddhist Spiritual Streams and Anthroposophy’ (1931), in which Beckh, for the first and last time, explains his lifelong personal connection to the Buddhist path.

Author Richard E. Sherman wrote a book under the title ‘Buddha and Jesus: Could Solomon Be the Missing Link?’ The book invoked the thought of many people about the common thought by religious makers. Why there are many similarities among these religions writing. Who wrote these books? After so many years of research and finding, I found out there were only two different religious philosophies in the land of Caucasian people. These two religious philosophies of Caucasian land dominated the entire world. For sure there were so many different religious philosophies in other parts of the world too. But not reached the entire world like those religions started on the Caucasian land 12,000 years ago. The links are short in this book; I do understand Caucasian ancient language, which helped me to write these books. If you need a detailed explanation, please read my books about religions and histories too

"[Thich Nhat Hanh] shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth." --His Holiness The Dalai Lama Nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr. for a Nobel Peace Prize, Thich Nhat Hanh is one of today’s leading sources of wisdom, peace, compassion and comfort. Exiled from Vietnam over thirty years ago, Thich Nhat Hanh has become known as a healer of the heart, a monk who shows us how the everyday world can both enrich and endanger our spiritual lives. In this book, Jesus and Buddha share a conversation about prayer and ritual and renewal, and about where such concepts as resurrection and the practice of mindfulness converge. In this unique way, Thich Nhat Hanh shows the brotherhood between Jesus and Buddha-- and in the process shows how we can take their wisdom into the world with us, to "practice in such a way that Buddha is born every moment of our daily life, that Jesus Christ is born every moment of our daily life."

What does Jesus mean to a Buddhist, or the Buddha to a Christian? What is it about the Buddha that is appealing to a Christian, or unappealing? In this volume 12 scholars, six of them Christian and six of them Buddhists, speak simply and from the heart about their personal relationship to the great religious leader from the other tradition. The diversity of views within each tradition could be a shock to the average Buddhist or Christian on the street. Buddhists argue about Buddha's nature, Buddha veneration, and the role the Buddha plays in human liberation. Christians argue about Jesus' human and divine status, his uniqueness, and the role he plays in human salvation. The contributors celebrate the family likeness between Jesus and the Buddha, but they also acknowledge the differences as well, for it is at the points of difference that potentially there is the most opportunity for growth.

Christ Way Buddha Way Jesus As Wisdom Teacher And A Zen Perspective On His Teachings

Putting aside what you think you know about Christianity and Christ's teachings, and reading the gospels again as if for the first time, Jesus emerges as a profound wisdom teacher, whose teachings had a lot in common with those of Buddha. This book explores Christ's teachings on non-duality and his guidance on how to reach unity, oneness with God through what he called metanoia (going beyond, meta, thought, noia) through kenoisis (self-emptying). What emerges is a strong connection between Christ's teachings and Buddhism that reveals Jesus was clearly familiar with Buddhist teachings. By viewing Christ's teachings through the lens of Zen, common themes emerge that enable the author to recreate what Christ called "The Way." Christ's Way is reconstructed as a practical guide to waking up to your true self, to your Christ Nature, just as the mystics and Zen masters have described. The author reviews what we know about Buddhism in the middle east at the time of Christ, the influence of Greek philosophy on Christ's teachings and the long history of Greek Buddhists that pre-dates Christ. He also considers The Gospel of Thomas as being a rich source of Christ's teachings, the earliest version of which may pre-date the gospels or the writings of Paul. This book explores the deep truths of Christ teachings, hidden in plain sight, showing how when misconceptions about his teachings are removed what emerges is a whole new view of Christianity for the 21st Century: Christ as wisdom teacher, Christ as a teacher of non-dual awareness, and as a guide to living fully in the present moment.

Does any one religion have all the answers? Or must we find the answers to life’s questions within ourselves? What would the Buddha think of Jesus’ message of unconditional love? Would the Buddha and Jesus have any common ground? In Jesus Meets the Buddha, author James Kim attempts to answer these questions and many more by exploring the histories and beliefs of two of the world’s major religions: Christianity and Buddhism. Driven by his own desire to answer questions such as “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” Kim builds on the discourses of the world’s greatest thinkers to examine religions and philosophies, including Judaism, Hinduism, Confucianism, and even Voodoo. His conclusion is that every religion in existence today is a precious gem of human history and an irreplaceable facet of the giant mosaic that makes up our world. He argues that by combining Jesus’ teaching with the long-held ethical and religious traditions of the East, we can build a meaningful unity for humankind. Provocative and well-researched, Jesus Meets the Buddha is a must-read book for anyone interested in the world’s religions or who is looking for their own answers about their place in the universe.

Buddhist Christianity

It is possible to be a Christian Buddhist in the context of a universal belief that sits fairly lightly on both traditions. Ross Thompson takes especially seriously the aspects of each faith that seem incompatible with the other, no God and no soul in Buddhism, for example, and the need for grace and the historical atonement on the cross in Christianity. Buddhist Christianity can be no bland blend of the tamer aspects of both faiths, but must result from a wrestling of the seeming incompatibles, allowing each faith to shake the other to its very foundations. The author traces his personal journey through which his need for both faiths became painfully apparent. He explores the Buddha and Jesus through their teachings and the varied communities that flow from them, investigating their different understandings of suffering and wrong, self and liberation, meditation and prayer, cosmology and God or not? He concludes with a bold commitment to both faiths.
