Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 190329679X, Hardcover)Discover the striking similarities between two of the world's greatest spiritual teachers. Are there universal truths to guide us through life? If we compare the sayings of Jesus and Buddha, the answer is a heartfelt yes. One came from the West, the other from the East; and they created two distinctly different religions. But the thoughts they left us on how to keep our lives simple, appreciate the world around us, and open our souls to other people, are surprisingly similar. How could Jesus, living five hundred years after Buddha and three thousand miles from India, espouse the same teachings? Jesus & Buddha explores this enigrna as it traces the life stories and beliefs of Christ and Buddha, inviting you to discover for yourself the single message in their dual teaching.
