Christ was a wonderful person who taught not only peace and harmony but also purity of mind, love, compassion. So those who follow the teachings of Christ certainly like to develop this good quality of purity, love, compassion. When they come to courses, they don't feel that they are coming to any foreign religion. A number of times very senior priests and nuns have told me that we are teaching Christianity in the name of Buddha." S.N.Goenka
Goenka probably does not voice these particular views when facing a row of stern Burmese Sayadaws, but it a very positive vision. Paul Tillich believed that Christianity would eventually have to come to terms with Buddhism, and as a result it would change significantly. Goenka himself seems like a classic example of 'Are you a UU without knowing it?'
