JESUS AND BUDDHISTS Elizabeth J. Harris OST WRITING ON INTER-FAITH TOPICS in Christian circles concentrates on how Christians come to terms with ‘other religions’.

This essay is going to be different: it will explore some Buddhist accounts of Jesus. Buddhist perceptions of Jesus book do this, I shall use a set of categories—. THE PERCEPTION OF JESUS AND CHRISTIANITY AMONG EARLY GERMAN BUDDHISTS Frank Usarski 1. As Reference Point: A Legend The scene was probably the city of Leipzig.

It was the end of the 19th century, and Leipzig, indeed Saxony as a whole, was one of the most industrialized areas in Germany1. Ideologically the times were not very comfortable and people were con-fronted with an. Jesus spoke regularly of 'the way.' Moreover, according to the book of Acts, the earliest name for the Jesus movement was 'the Way.' The Gospel of John thus only takes this image one step further in speaking of Jesus as the incarnation of 'the way.' "What Jesus and the Buddha said about 'the way' is remarkably similar.

THE GOOD-HEARTED JESUS. Arguably, the most famous Buddhist in the world is the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists. In some ways it is both misleading and un-Buddhist that one man represent the world Buddhist community.

Buddhism is much less hierarchically structured than Christianity, and one of its principle teachings. I bought this book because I had developed a list of Buddhist sayings which were the same message as I have heard from Jesus. I have been pondering why so many people think that somehow being a Buddhist is wiser and more peaceful (and preferred) to being a Christian when the wisdom is the same.4/5(83).

In their recent book, The Original Jesus, Elman Gruber and Holger Kersten go even further and argue that the story of Jesus’ virgin birth was borrowed from a Buddhist source that claimed the same kind of supernatural origin for Buddha. 3 This is unlikely.

First, this view overlooks significant differences between the two accounts. The Buddha said, "Be ye lamps unto yourselves." Jesus said almost the same thing: "Ye Buddhist perceptions of Jesus book the light of the world." The Buddha declared all matter in this world to be transitory.

Jesus said: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away." The Buddha's last words are said to be, "Work out your own salvation with diligence.".

Experts speculate that this is the foundational origin of the story of the Three Wise Men, and it is now believed Jesus was taken to India at 13 and taught as a Buddhist. At the time, Buddhism was already a year-old religion and Christianity, of course, had not even begun.

“Jesus is said to have visited our land and Kashmir to study Buddhism. Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and has authored over a hundred books finds similarities between Buddha and Jesus at every corner.

His books "Living Jesus, Living Buddha" and "Going Home: Jesus and Buddha as Brothers" argue that the differences between the. Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus [Book Review].

The Buddhist-style interpretation of Jesus words (presented only as a sample in the book – refer to the box) may appear bland and incomplete compared to the rich metaphor of the New Testament. Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus (review) Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus (review) May, John D'Arcy BOOK REV IEWS Rather, we may experience that the Spirit of Christ is identical with our own Spirit and that we may express that spirit confidently in the constantly changing unique circumstances of our lives.

This experience of identity is what Augustine referred to when. Much of what Jesus did was done five hundred years earlier by Buddha. So, schooled as a Buddhist, Jesus spoke and acted like a Buddhist. Jesus was the most important source for the biblical accounts of his life, which he gave to Peter and which Peter gave to Matthew and Luke.

He has been a member of the secretarial board of the 'European Network of Buddhist-Christian Studies' since Perry has authored five books, co-authored two and edited ten (e.g. Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus, St.

Ottilien ; War and Peace in World Religions, SCM ; Buddhism and Christianity in Dialogue, SCM ). For example, when the discussion was on Markthe Dalai Lama keyed on Jesus’ statement that the people are his brothers and sisters.

He interpreted Jesus’ words of detachment from his mother and brothers as similar to the Buddhist doctrine of detachment from all things in order to be truly compassionate toward all things (). “From Buddha to Jesus” is currently the second-bestselling Christian book of all time in Thailand, a 95% Buddhist country.

The first thing you notice about JESUS AND BUDDHA: THE PARALLEL SAYINGS is that the book itself is very attractive. The sayings of Jesus are on the left page with the sayings of Buddha on the right, and the paper is deckle s:   Mr.

Kersten's book notes similarities in the lives and messages of Jesus Christ and Buddha. The Sermon on the Mount, he says, has its forerunners in older Buddhist. Thich Nhat Hanh affirmed core Christian beliefs such as the trinity, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in his book Living Buddha, Living Christ.

Bokin Kim, similarly, sees Christ as the Buddha Dharmakaya, and Jesus as similar to Gautama who was just a historical manifestation of the transhistorical Buddha.

Buddhism and Christianity would appear to have little in common. One is non-theistic for instance, the other, theistic. But the sayings of Jesus and the Buddha, whose teachings gave rise to the.

As I began to read these scripture I was. This is what Jesus came to bring to us. His message is the good news of deliverance from sin, suffering, and death. It is the good news of the way to eternal life, to reconciliation with almighty God, and to an everlasting kingdom where impermanence will no longer poison every good thing with the threat of loss, disappointment, and decay.

Borg said some historians believe that Buddhist principles had filtered through the Roman Empire by the time of Jesus. Jesus did. Believing that Jesus is indeed whom He says, the Buddhist must choose to disregard Buddha's teachings, surrendering instead to a Savior.

Christ requires exclusivity, refusing to be worshipped in conjunction with a myriad of idols. The more Nok learned about Jesus, the more she fell in love with Him.

She told her family: No more temples. Some scholars believe that there exist significant Buddhist influences on Christianity reaching back to Christianity's earliest days.

Buddhism was known in the pre-Christian Greek world, and hence the later Roman Empire, through the campaigns of Alexander the Great (see Greco-Buddhism and Greco-Buddhist monasticism).Several prominent early Christian fathers (e.g.

Clement of Alexandria and St. Stated simply, the Jewish view of Jesus of Nazareth is that he was an ordinary Jewish man and, most likely, a preacher living during the Roman occupation of Israel in the 1st century C.E.

Buddhism and Christianity are both religions that have a substantial history and millions of dedicated followers throughout the world. In some ways, the two religions are similar, being based largely on the teachings of a single man; Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha in the case of Buddhism, and The Lord Jesus Christ in the case of Christianity.

Art and photography books bring the vision of the world to your very eyes. Art is fundamental to the human experience, and just one art book can show you millions of dollars worth of old masters from around the world without the need to leave your couch. Photography books let you see the world as people like Ansel Adams and F-Stop Fitzgerald.

Even though it’s an extremely silly question, since Jesus, having lived 2, years ago, doesn’t think about anything, let alone Buddha I’ll still weigh in on this question. In all likelihood, Jesus never heard of Buddha. Therefore, he probably n. Jesus through Buddhist eyes Ajahn Candasiri is a senior nun at the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in Hertfordshire.
