Depends on what is meant. I have heard of this. There is no God in Buddhism, so you could, I suppose, focus your meditations toward God rather than (just?) enlightenment.<br />
There is an old saying: There are as many religions as there are people.
Not at all. Buddhism is a philosophy, not a religion. You can combine Buddhism with anything. Well, anything that isn't violent.
Yes, there is no Jesus in Buddhism.
who the hell is jesus?
No, people can justify anything
Buddhism is a religion in some parts of the world, I don't think of it as one. Buddha was a human being who wanted to find the meaning of life. Buddhism is what he found. It doesn't involve "God" or blind faith or anything religious. It has been called "a way of life" and a "science of the mind".<br />
There are Christian Buddhists, Jewish Buddhists, Atheist Buddhists, Agnostic Buddhists. Buddhism doesn't interfere with your religion.<br />
In Buddhist terms, Jesus would be a Bodhisattva, a spiritual person who helps people, and he is certainly the Bodhisattva of our era.
Why all the labels? Just be.
I think that would be called interfaith. From my understanding, you could be one or the other.
no. there's even christian atheists.
No, Buddism is a spiritual philosopy, christianity is a religion
Both are faith/belief systems.
yes, but only one requires faith, buddism requires only belief in yourself and others
That's a good question! I don't really think so, or maybe it depends on how you interpret the Bible and the Suttas. I think the two can blend quite nicely.
That's true. I think it could work, in a really, REALLY loose sense. I know that Buddhism is nontheistic, but in a way, I kind of picture the Buddhist "god" as enlightenment. It's not a god you worship, but its a god you find within yourself, I guess that's blasphemy for Christians (or omnipotence?) Hmm...
