NREL 113C - Parallel Teachings of Jesus, Lao Tzu, Buddha, and Krishna

When we look past the religious and cultural phrasings, the philosophy of these unique teachers is remarkably similar. Was this ancient wisdom simply common knowledge passed along the Silk Road or did these teachings come from a higher source? If so, what are the ecumenical implications? Did Jesus travel and study in the East during his 'missing' years as some scholars suggest? We will also explore the concept that yoga and other Eastern practices are 'the science of connecting to God.'
