From the author of the best-selling Living Buddha, Living Christ comes a journey into healing one of the greatest wounds of our time: alienation from our own spiritual traditions.
Living Buddha, Living Christ opened the door to a dialogue between Christianity and Buddhism. Going Home takes us on a journey into the practice of revitalized Christianity. In Living Buddha, Living Christ, Buddha and Jesus say “hello” to each other. In Going Home, they sit down together and have a lengthy conversation. They ask each other for advice. They talk about how they can be united. They demonstrate their theological convergence. They talk about each others’ prayers, rituals, and forms of practice.
Thich Nhat Hanh celebrates the life-affirming roots of two ancient spiritual traditions. As he says, “Redemption and resurrection are neither words nor objects of belief. They are our daily practice. We practice in such a way that Buddha is born every moment of our daily life, that Jesus Christ is born every moment of our daily life.”
This book is an exquisite guide to establishing deep roots in the traditions to which we are born, a moving reading experience for anyone interested in finding their spiritual home.
