This volume examines Buddhist-Christian dialogue since the Vatican Council II and especially the role played by the annual Vesak message of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue to its Buddhist dialogue partners. Both Buddhist and Christian practitioners and experts in a variety of fields have contributed essays to this volume on issues of importance in Buddhist-Christian relations. The essays are organized into three sections: historical studies, thematic issues and contemporary questions.
This volume is offered as a means of preparing the reader for a better understanding of the past, present and future of Buddhist-Christian dialogue. This unique collection is a must read for anyone interested in building a culture of compassion through dialogue.
