Years ago, on the late, night show with Larry King, he was interviewing several prominent religious and spiritual leaders. One of his guests was the Dali Lama, leader of Tibetan Buddhism. A woman called in and told the Dali Lama her Christianity was dead in the water. She asked the Dali Lama should she become a Buddhist……The Dali Lama threw back his head back and in his typical laugh said, “No, no my dear, study Buddha, find Christ.”

In his reflection, David Heatherly will share many parallels between the Christ and Buddha. We will encounter the wisdom they share and discover that it comes from the same source – the relationship each has with compassion and love.
