Good Heart: A Buddhist Perspective on the Teachings of Jesus
Author: Dalai Lama
This book explores the Gospels with the Dalai Lama and the participants of the 1994 John Main Seminar. In addition to capturing the proceedings of the Seminar, this book has been augmented with additional contextual material on the Christian and Buddhist traditions to enhance its use as a tool for future interreligious dialogues. The main body of The Good Heart is organized around individual passages from the Gospels upon which the Dalai Lama is commenting. Each chapter begins with His Holinesss reading of and comments on a particular Gospel passage. The Gospel passages used in The Good Heart are based on the New English Bible, which was John Mains preferred version. Introdcution and Christian context by Laurence Freeman, OSB.
