Discover 7 Spiritual Teachings Jesus and Buddha Have in Common

If you had to choose between Jesus and Buddha, who would YOU pick to be your spiritual teacher?

It may sound like a strange question… unless you’re like me and an estimated 64 million people in the U.S. alone who identify as “spiritual, not religious.”

The gift of not choosing a particular religion is you can be open to many teachings and glean the truths and guidance which speak most to your soul.

Personally, my parents weren’t religious. We didn’t go to church or temple or the Zendo.

Later on in life, the presence of this “Higher Power” has stayed with me.

It’s equally strong inside a church or synagogue, walking a labyrinth or along the beach and sitting on Zen meditation pillow.

Maybe you can relate…

To be sure, it’s wonderful to have the freedom to pick and choose, depending on what you need for this or that junction of the spiritual journey. The risk is you might be only skimming the surface of a deep well of wisdom. BUDDHISM, JESUSCHRIST, JESUS, BUDDHISM, BIBLE, AMAZING, SIMILARITY, Siddhartha Gautama, FAITH.
