Buddha’s Doctrine: Complete Regeneration of Mind and Indispensable Precursor of the Doctrine of Christ

“For the fact is that the doctrine of the Buddha, with its Four Great Truths and its Noble Eightfold Path, its boundless compassion towards all sentient life, its reasonable ethical teaching of development through self-conquest and self-culture, its simple yet profound analysis of suffering and sorrow with the method of escape therefrom (…), its entire regeneration of the mind, its exalted code of morality and standard of tolerance, peace, and charity – that doctrine is the indispensable forerunner and interpreter of the doctrine of the Christ.” (Bertram McCrie. The Living Truth in Christianity, p. 26; emphasis added)
