Format: Paperback
This book describes how a Benedictine monk, Laurence Freeman, invited a Buddhist monk Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the Dalai Lama to participate in a seminar where the Dalai Lama was asked to make comments on eight important passages of the Gospel. Freeman expected that the seminar participants would develop a deeper understanding of the these texts and that turned out to be exactly right
Just two examples. One sentence from the Sermon of the mount: " How blest are those who hunger and thirst to see right prevail; they shall be satisfied."
The Dalai Lama: "This passage seems to indicate the simple fact that those who are willing to embark upon a path accept the hardships and the pain involved will reap the rewards of their commitments. The verses imply that if you act in a certain way , then you experience a certain effect, and if you do not act in a certain way you will not experience that effect. This is the general principle of causality, which is behind the principle of karma." This is often presented by the principle, "Nothing exists without a cause'.
The second example is about what Jesus replied when he was told that his mother and brother had arrived asking him to come out to them. Jesus reply: "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" And looking around him he said, "Here are my brother and sister and Mother." The Dalai Lama: "This passage shows us on the part of Jesus a certain attitude of unimportance to his own mother and sisters. This tells us that true and genuine compassion is a compassion that is free from attachment, free from the limitations of personal bias. Genuine compassion springs from a clear recognition of suffering on the part of the object of suffering and from the realization that this creature is worthy of compassion and affection.

This is a fantastic book for people who would like to look at some comparative religion issues. The Dalai Lama brings looks at the teachings of Jesus with the eyes of a Buddhist teacher and, in my opinion, finds quite a bit of common ground. Finding common ground contributes to tolerance, acceptance and understanding of each other and each other's faiths. I love this book!!!

I gave this little book to my grandson prior to his back packing across a few countries. He still has it as one of his favourite books.
