Jesus and Buddha: Two Messengers of Light
Both Jesus and Buddha taught ways of living a good life in the midst of persistent imperfection. Both were asked to resurrect the dead. Both spoke in parables about mustard seeds. This talk reflects on their divergent and convergent teachings as we prepare to celebrate Buddha’s birthday (April 8) and Jesus’ Resurrection (April 21). Readings from Marcus Borg’s helpful book – Jesus and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings.
