Teachings Of Jesus And Buddha Compared

The soul comes into the world contaminated with sin, which it has inherited from Adam following the fall from grace. Without the intervention of salvation it is surely destined for hell. The mind comes into the world bearing positive and negative imprints from its previous existences.

Many sayings of Jesus and the Buddha have much in common. The following are some examples: Jesus: "Do to others as you would have them do to you." Luke 6:31 Buddha: "Consider others as yourself." Dhammapada 10:1 Jesus: "If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also." Luke 6:29 Buddha: "If anyone should give you a blow with his hand, with a stick, or with a knife, you should abandon any desires and utter no evil words." Majjhima Nikaya 21:6 Jesus: When he saw that they were straining at the oars against an adverse wind, he came towards them early in the morning, walking on the sea. Mark 6.48 Buddha: He walks upon the water without parting it, as if on solid ground. Anguttara Nikaya 3.60 Jesus: "Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me." Matthew 25:45
