Three leading figures in today's Buddhist-Christian dialogue share their personal journeys in our new documentary Jesus and Buddha: Practicing Across Traditions. We learn how following the path of the Buddha has informed and deepened their understanding of who Jesus was and what he taught. Their experience and insight bring these two liberating archetypes alive in a way that can help guide us through our own confusion and struggle toward lives filled with joy and gratitude, compassion and service.
The film features:
-Father Robert Kennedy, a Jesuit priest and Zen teacher;
-Chung Hyun Kyung, Professor of Ecumenical Theology and Interfaith Engagement at Union Theological Seminary and a Buddhist Dharma teacher; and
-Paul Knitter, Professor of Theology, World Religions and Culture at Union Theological Seminary.
