For the tenth annual John Main Seminar, the World Community for Christian Meditation brought Christians and Buddhists together to experience enlightened dialogue between religions conducted with respect, reverence, and the joy of friendship.
From this remarkable event comes an historic first in publishing: The Good Heart. In this unprecedented book, one of the world's most beloved spiritual teachers, the Dalai Lama, comments on well-known passages from each of the four Christian Gospels, providing a unique reading of these familiar source of faith. Offering his Buddhist perspective on the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, the parable of the mustard seed, the Resurrection, and other selections, the Dalai Lama finds many similarities between Christian and Buddhist teachings, as well as an extraordinary correspondence between the narratives and lives of Jesus and the Buddha.
