Abstract

近數十年,不少研究指出內信仰定位及正面的宗教應付方式與個人心理健康有密切關係。文獻提出宗教認知基模的概念,指出它能讓個人在逆境中發掘當中的意義。但因這概念建基於基督教派,焦點主要集中個人對神的意象。反之,佛教卻著重個人的世界觀,強調個人對世事的執著正是痛苦的根源,唯有覺悟才能脫離苦海。本文提出一個結合對神和世界兩方面觀點的架構,說明如何借用禪宗的方法,加強對基督教受助者的輔導。

默想:這研究是否說明基督教的不足呢?

Jesus and Buddha: The Parallel Sayings

Edited by Marcus Borg, Ray Riegert

ISBN 1-56975-121-8


=== First few paragraphs on Amazon.com ===

"Do to others as you would have them do to you."

"Consider others as yourself".

The ideas -- spoken by teachers separated by five hundred years, three thousand miles, and two drastically different culture -- are identical.

"Give to anyone who requests it."

"Give when you are asked."

Over and over again in the New Testament and the ancient Buddhist scriptures, we discovered that the lives, deeds and teachings of Jesus and Buddha are strikingly similar.


=====  The Editorial Review on Amazon.com =======

The often violent history of Christianity may lead us to forget that Jesus's original teachings promoted peace and turning the other cheek, passive resistance rather than armed insurrection. Marcus Borg, a Christian and Jesus scholar, focuses on this basic aspect of Christianity by selecting a range of quotations from the Gospels and pairing them with parallel sayings by the Buddha. For example, whereas Jesus said, 'Blessed are the poor, for yours is the kingdom of God,' Buddha said, 'Let us live most happily, possessing nothing; let us feed on joy, like the radiant gods.' It is surprising, to a reader familiar only with the Bible, to find how similar the words of the two religious leaders actually are. The main part of the book is taken up entirely by quotations, a pair to each large page, divided into sections such as 'Inner Life' and 'Temptation', each with a brief introduction. Beautiful, peaceful photographic illustrations stand alongside the text, most of them in full colour, on elegantly designed pages. In a long, detailed preface, Marcus Borg gives a history of the origins of both Christianity and Buddhism and a summary of their beliefs. He makes it clear that the similarities in each pair of quotations are not contrived or by chance by drawing out parallel themes in the two religions. Both emphasize imagery of 'the way' or 'the path'; both see death as a step on a spiritual journey, not as the end. This is in many ways an odd book, scholarly in its introduction but with a spiritual simplicity in the main body of the text. Nevertheless, many readers will treasure it.


難怪有人說耶穌出道前曾往印度學佛。
