Saint Young Men - Japanese manga comic - When Jesus met Buddha


We've mentioned When Jesus met Buddha before in the blog and the story comes from a Japanese manga comic called Saint Young men written by the author Hikaru Nakamura (she is a woman by the way!) in 2007. The story revolves around Jesus and the Buddha coming back to earth to spend a holiday here and shows them in a number of situations trying to survive in the modern world (or more to the point modern Japan). To those with an open mind the manga comic is a refreshing look at modern spirituality. Jesus turns out to be a bit of a materialist spending money on stuff where the Buddha wants to save money and find the rent for their apartment.

"When we are still looking deeply, and touching the source of our true wisdom, we touch the living Buddha and the living Christ in ourselves and in each person we meet." Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Zen monk
