Library Journal - Library Journal
Published here are papers from a major symposium concerning Buddhist and Christian conceptions of the nature of transcendent or ultimate reality. The position papers and responses, all by leading religious thinkers, probe for similarities and differences between terms, such as emptiness, God, and Buddha , and seek resonances among Buddhist, Christian, and modern scientific (e.g., holographic hypothesis) symbols. Ultimately, the possibility that various symbol systems express a single ineffable order and the legitimacy of excluding certain cults (``perhaps, the neo-Aryan religion, or that of Jonestown'') from the group of ``valid'' expressive symbols are discussed.
