      Buddhism is a practice, like yoga. You can be a Christian and practice Buddhism. I met a Catholic priest who lives in a Buddhist monastery in France. He told me that Buddhism makes him a better Christian. I love that.” Those words were attributed to Thich Nhất Hạnh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk. I told my friend that he was treading on. The idea of “self” to a Buddhist has a lot of differences to “self” as a Christian. To a Buddhist, they do not believe that they exist. They believe that the nature of life is impermanent and always changing and evolving (Corduan, ). Buddha believes that there is only “anatman” or nonself.

      Question: "I am a Buddhist. Why should I consider becoming a Christian?" Answer: Compared with Buddhism, Christianity has several distinguishing features that show that it deserves consideration. First, while both Christianity and Buddhism have an historical central figure, namely Jesus and Buddha, only Jesus is shown to have risen from the dead. Such a notion is the very antithesis of Christian doctrine (Ephesians ; Titus ). In Buddhism (and Buddhism is the offspring of Hinduism), one finally escapes Karma by the elimination of desire, and, as David Bentley-Taylor notes: “It is an evolutionary process to be achieved by one’s own effort” (Anderson , ).

    Self-denial means “turning away from the idolatry of self-centeredness and every attempt to orient one’s life by the dictates of self-interest” (John Grassmick, The Bible Knowledge Commentary [Victor Books], ). It means to give up the right to control your life and to give that right to Jesus Christ. Consider the idea in your mind of what nothingness is. Take a clear look at what this idea is, and what is attached to it. Where you came to understand this idea, and what exactly it means to you. I think I understand that idea, I can connect to that idea. Understand that is an idea, that is a thought, it is a concept defined in your head.

A basic doctrine of Buddhism is the statement that no Self exists, the doctrine of Non-Self, Anatta 1. This doctrine can be even be considered as the fundamental point of Buddhism.

When later asked why, he said that to hold either that there is a self or that there is no self is to fall into extreme forms of wrong view that make the path of Buddhist practice impossible."

Can a Christian be a Buddhist, Too. Jay McDaniel Many years ago, when I was in seminary, I had the unusual experience of living in two religious worlds simultaneously: one Christian and one Buddhist. He and I were always talking about the Buddhist idea of no-separate-self, or anatman.

His simple explanations and presentations of buddhist ideas are extremely well done; however, his comparisons with jesus and christian beliefs are somewhat lacking.

I feel like there are a lot of comparisons he misses, and some that he makes are off the mark. Still, an excellent book if solely from a buddhist perspective/5. So the first realization that must be made in trying to reconcile anyone who chooses to be a Christian-Buddhist (or Buddhist in the Christian Tradition) is that their combined belief systems must incorporate the similarities of the Buddha and Jesus.

Vital to the Buddhist world view is the non-existence of things, even of the self. This indeed makes communication rather difficult, as one is never quite sure whether one is actually involved in. Study Gotama and his followers, Jesus and his words, Spinoza and his writings, Plato, Aristotle, Nietzsche and so many others.

Arriving at the truth is a matter of hard work and study. To imagine that there is a single 'answer', be it 'Christian' or 'Buddhist', is to shut our minds to the vastness of Truth.

His complete sacrifice of self will be especially appealing. We must also focus on grace and forgiveness. Though this may be intellectually difficult for a Buddhist to accept, real spiritual and emo­tional need can open the door to understanding.
