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.

From Buddha to Christ

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the groundbreaking research of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), Beckh’s comprehension of Buddhism was neither limited to historical documents nor scholarly research in philology.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.

Die neu entdeckte Biographie von Jack Kerouac über den historischen Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, und den Weg zur Erleuchtung. In den 50er Jahren entdeckte Jack Kerouac seine Faszination für den Buddhismus. Diese spirituelle Erweckung fand ihre literarische Form in "Lebendiger Buddha". Mit großer poetischer Ausdruckskraft erzählt er nicht nur das Leben des Siddhartha Gautama, sondern schreibt gleichzeitig eine Einführung in die buddhistische Lehre. "Lebendiger Buddha" ist das amerikanische Pendant zu Hermann Hesses "Siddhartha".

Buddhists Talk About Jesus, Christians Talk About the Buddha

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.

Buddhist and Christian?

An Exploration of Dual Belonging

"The last century witnessed a gradual but profound transformation of the West's religious landscape. In today's context of diversity, people are often influenced by more than one religion. Buddhism and Christianity is a particularly prevalent and fascinating combination. This book presents a detailed exploration of Buddhist Christian dual belonging, engaging - from both Buddhist and Christian perspectives - the questions that arise, and drawing on extensive interviews with well-known individuals in the vanguard of this important and growing phenomenon. The book looks at how it is possible to be authentically Buddhist and authentically Christian despite the differences in religion beliefs and practices. It discusses whether those who identify themselves as belonging to both traditions are profoundly irrational, religiously schizophrenic or perhaps just spiritually superficial, or if it is possible to reconcile the thought and practice of Buddhism and Christianity in such a way that one can be deeply committed to both. Finally, the book looks at whether the influence of Buddhist Christians on each of these traditions is something to be regretted or celebrated. It is an interesting contribution to studies on Asian Religion and Theology"--
