________________________________________________

 

In the Name of God, the Infinitely Good, the All-Merciful.

Say: O disbelievers.
I shall not worship that which ye worship.
Nor will ye worship that which I worship. 
Nor have I worshipped that which ye worship.
Nor have ye worshipped that which I worship.
For you your religion and for me mine.

(Quran; trans. by 
Martin Lings)

A disciple asked: 'Is there any special way to discipline oneself in the Way?'
The Master nodded.
'What is it, Master?'
'When hungry one eats, when tired one sleeps.'
'Isn't that what everyone does?' 
'Not at all!'
'Then what is the difference?'
'When they eat, they don't just eat, they indulge in worries and imaginings. When they sleep they are given to idle dreams. That is their way, but their way is not my way.'

(Hui Hai)

Forging an interfaith dialog between traditions that typically stand at odds, this groundbreaking book explores the scriptural and spiritual tenets of Islam and Buddhism in relation to one another, creating a basis for comparison and analysis of the two traditions. The discussion juxtaposes foundational principles and practices by linking underlying principles and fostering a mutual appreciation between followers of both religions. This interfaith initiative focuses upon metaphysical and ethical aspects of Islam and Buddhism, placing them in context with each other, thus encouraging understanding, and providing a point of reference for continuing and deepening reciprocal respect and collaboration. In their respective introductions to this book, H.H. the Dalai Lama states that the book helps demonstrate that Islam is indeed a 'path of salvation'; while leading Islamic scholar of jurisprudence, Prof Mohammad Hashim Kamali, asserts that on the basis of this book one can argue that Buddhism is an authentic 'deen' or religion.
