My bf is not a Catholic…Right now he’s not really anything, but his family is Buddhist. He found this book somewhere called “Living Buddha, living Christ” (he’s quite a gullible guy too), and now hes starting to think that he can be Catholic and Buddhist at the same time?! I don’t know if anyone else has heard of this book, I havn’t read hardly anything in it, but the whole idea of it sounds absurd to me. In the book the man writes that the concepts (for lack of a better word??) of Catholosism and Buddism are a lot alike, and that he is a practicing Catholic, who receives communion and everything, but is also a “zen monk”. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this, or even if you havn’t, what your thoughts would be on it?
Here’s the address to the book on amazon:
