The Divine and the Human

Standard

There’re many discussions about simile between Jesus and Buddha, and it’s true. there’re many points to compare. but sometimes I think that there’s also an unfair act to compare them on the history, because, in the case of Jesus, there are so may veiling by the religious actors in the history. to be honest, I think that there’re many lies about Jesus and we don’t really know how he really was. 🙂

“Jung found the Buddha to be a more ’complete human being’ than the Christ because the Buddha lived his life and took as his task the realization of the Self through understanding, whereas with the Christ this realization was more like a fate which happened to him.”
Marie Louise von Franz, Jung’s Myth in Our Time
