In this landmark book of interfaith dialogue, the Dalai Lama provides an extraordinary Buddhist perspective on the teachings of Jesus, commenting on well-known passages from the four Christian Gospels including the Sermon on the Mount, the parable of the mustard seed, the Resurrection, and others. Drawing parallels between Jesus and the Buddhaand the rich traditions from which they hailHis Holiness delivers a profound affirmation of the sacred in all religions. Listeners will be inspired by the Dalai Lama's discussion of the endless merits of each tradition and uplifted by the common humanity between them.
This is a good read for secular and religious scholars alike. It considers the practical application of what Jesus said, and offers it the respect they deserve as wise and thoughtful expressions right living, but doesn't blindly accept them at face value without thought.
Most pleasing to me personally is seeing the parallels that run between all the people striving to be better people, and how at a cetrain threshold so many come to the same conclusion, despite taking different paths. All roads lead to Rome, I suppose?
Absolutely worth reading if the topic is already interesting to you.
