In this fascinating lecture from a Zen Buddhist he gives the Buddhist perspective on Jesus. He examines the nature of Jesus and concludes from a Buddhist point of view that he was a Bodhisattva - an enlightened being. The Christian priest who is sitting just below the podium squirms throughout as his belief is questioned analytically. The main point is the Buddha never claimed to be a god unlike other "deities" who claim to be God and by freeing his mind from delusion reached enlightenment.
