The Buddha, Christ and Gandhi - the great three are universally regarded as harbingers of harmony, compassion and peace, the first of whom is once again being revived in modern times to sort out the present day problems of unprecedented violence and terror - the Holy Dalai Lama being one powerful expression of his message and piety. His was history's first religion of peace which spread all over Asia, including its western regions, without any use of force, and holds its lamp in the East in particular till date. Latest researches in Germany are succeeding in establishing that Jesus Christ was one in the Bodhisattva tradition, who not only stayed and studied in India when he was young, but returned to Kashmir after his crucifixion, in which he did not die and escaped with his followers to Srinagar, where he lived till age 90, and where his tomb still quietly stands.
Buddhism has a large corpus of scripture, but the Dhammapada is regarded as the Bhagavadgita of Hinduism-the guide book of the religion, aimed at the lay person. It has a number of translations in Chinese, Japanese and Tibetan, and has been very popular all over these countries. An added chapter is the book of meditations in Buddhism, equally popular in Buddhist circles.
