Here is what Jesus and Buddha said…

Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” What does this mean, to be the light of the world? In the same manner the Buddha, in his parting words of comfort and advice to his disciples, insisted: “Be lamps unto yourselves; be your own confidence. Hold to the truth within yourselves as the only truth.”

We are all Buddhas, filled with divine nature; to cleanse ourselves of our negative qualities, to purify ourselves of our defects—in short, to become like the saints. But perhaps the more gentle and ultimately more accurate path is the one that leads us directly into the fertile garden of our own spirit, into what Merton calls our “hidden wholeness.” Our most fruitful practice is the one that most gently leads us into ourselves just as we are, into the innate perfection of our true nature.”

What is Sacred

We have gone amiss by losing the sacred art of ancient rituals and symbols in our culture. It is evident that we want these rituals and symbols, however, because of the popularity of books by J. K. Rowling and Dan Brown and films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones. We long…
