We just came upon three wonderful articles by persons whose spiritual perspicacity we very much appreciate.
They are all referenced from the Matheson Trust website.
The first article is ‘A Brief Talk at the Interfaith Meeting between Buddhists and Muslims’ by Rev. Kemmyo Taira Sato (author of Great Living: In the Pure Encounter Between Master and Disciple).
The Second is Pure Land Buddhism and Islam by Dr. Reza Shah-Kazemi (author of Common Ground Between Islam and Buddhism: Spiritual and Ethical Affinities).
The third is referenced from this post, and is called Conceptions of the Absolute in Mahayana Buddhism and the Pure Land Way by John Paraskevopoulos (author of Call of the Infinite: The Way of Shin Buddhism).
We recommend these articles without reservation – they resonate well with our own findings drawn from the results of theoretical research and practical experience. In fact, in the latter article, the author’s reading of ‘The Awakening of Faith’ so closely parallels our own that reading it was quite uncanny.
It is also worthwhile to visit the website associated with The Common Ground Project and Dr Reza Shah-Kazemi’s book.
