As you may have noticed, I have been unable to post articles as frequently as usual this Fall, and I've decided to take an official sabbatical for the next month in order to catch up. I'll be returning in January, and in December, some other BellaOnline editors may post as guest editors on the Buddhism site. In the meantime, I've updated two popular past articles with new information, for your enjoyment. See you in January!
Buddhist Views of Jesus
As Buddhism's popularity in the West has grown, many scholars and religious leaders have drawn parallels between the lives and teachings of Buddha and Jesus. This article covers a few, including similar sayings.
Buddhist Meditation and Brain Changes
Recent research indicates compassion meditation and other Buddhist practices permanently change the brain. Learn how, and what this research means for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists.
