Q. What do you, as a Buddhist, think of Christmas?

A. One of my favourite Bible scriptures is John 14:20 that says, “Jesus said, ‘I am in you and you are in me’.” Christmas should be a day when we can see Jesus; not the image of crucified Jesus from two thousand years ago but the eternal Jesus. We should see all people as Jesus by realising that each of us is one with Jesus just as John 14:20 in the Bible says.

Even if Jesus were to be born into this world a hundred times, it would be of no use if we only follow his image without grasping the meaning of his teaching. That is no other than following dead Jesus whilst forsaking living Jesus.

Merry Christmas Jesus!
