Something like this thread came up awhile ago, and while it may be frowned upon to re-post, my feelings on this subject are summed up with this
"Jesus was a buddhist in the purest sense. He was deeply in touch with the governing principle of the universe. He could do anything he wanted
because he had faith he could. He meditated, he manipulated the elements of thought and material. He taught those who would care to listen.
Buddhism - All that is, is. The wheel of life that will only stop turning once you surpass yourself I.E. become perfected. (cannot be done, our minds
always open themselves up to mal-intent, sin.)
Jesus - I am, I AM. The water of life that cleanses without you having to surpass yourself, because, you cannot surpass yourself when sin has already
overtaken you. Come as you are he says.
I take from the buddhist practices to supplement my life here on earth, to surpass, to catch thoughts before they even enter the seat of my mind. To
guard my doors from assailing desire."
