Jesus Brings Glory to the Father (Buddha):

John 7:16 Jesus responded to them, "What I teach doesn't come from me but from the one who sent me.

8:26 but he who sent me is true and what he has said to me I say to the world.

28 that I do nothing of myself, but as the Father taught me, I speak these things.

"for the Father is greater than I." John 14:28

''Jesus the new born prince''' is adored and predicted by seers "from the east" who celebrate his birth. (Matthew 2)
'''Buddhist Trinity (Tiratna) and Baptism:'''



"I take refuge, Lord, in the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha." (DN 31)



"Enough, I say, with this external bath. I am satisfied with this internal bath: confidence in the Blessed One." (SN 55.30 Licchavi Sutta)
Jesus Trinity and Baptism:

"baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19).

Buddha: Nirvana is Deathless" (Dhammapada 2:21-23)
Jesus: Everlasting Life:

that God gave us everlasting life. (1 John 5:11)
Buddha holds nothing back:

there is nothing, Ananda, with regard to the teachings that the Tathagata holds to the last with the closed fist of a teacher who keeps some things back. (Digha Nikaya, Mahaparinibbana Sutta,32)
Jesus holds nothing back:

because a slave doesn't know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have heard from My Father. (John 15:15)
Chosen ones of Buddha

the Blessed One saw beings with little dust in their eyes (Samyutta Nikaya 6.1 Ayacana Sutta) He has long had little dust in his eyes. What if I were to teach him the Dhamma first? (MN 26 Ariyapariyesana Sutta)
Chosen ones of Jesus

You did not choose Me, but I chose you. (John 15:16) (Matthew 9: 35 - 10: 8, Mark 3: 13 - 19, Luke 6: 12 - 18)
MARA AND BUDDHA Then Mara, the Evil One, knowing with his awareness the train of thought in the Blessed One's awareness, went to him and on arrival said to him: "Exercise rulership, Blessed One! Exercise rulership, O One Well-gone!

Mara leaves

Then Mara the Evil One sad & dejected at realizing, "The Blessed One knows me; the One Well-gone knows me" vanished right there. (Samyutta Nikaya 4.20 Rajja Sutta)
SATAN AND JESUS: And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, 6 and said to him, To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours

Satan leaves

13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time. (Luke 4:1)
Buddha is the Truth and the Law: "He who sees the Dhamma, he sees me; he who sees me, sees the Dhamma."Kindred Sayings (III, Khandhaa-vagga, Middle Fifty, Ch 4, 87, Vakkali Sutta)
Jesus is the Truth and the Law:Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
Buddha lectures priest on bloodless sacrifice:

"But, Reverend Gotama, is there any sacrifice that is more profitable than these four?" "There is, Brahmin."

"What is it, Reverend Gotama?" "Brahmin, if anyone with a pure heart undertakes the precepts - to refrain from taking life, from taking what is not given, from sexual immorality, from lying speech and from taking strong drink and sloth-producing drugs - that constitutes a sacrifice more profitable than any of these four."(Kutadanta Sutta)
Jesus lectures priest (Sadducees) on bloodless sacrifice:

33And to love Him with all the heart, with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." (Mark 12:33)
Buddha calls priests blind

O Vasettha, those brahmins who know the three Vedas are just like a line of blind men tied together where the first sees nothing, the middle man nothing, and the last sees nothing (Tevijja-Sutta, Dighanikaya, 13:15).
Jesus calls priests (Pharisees) blind

Can the blind lead the blind? Won't they both fall into a pit? (Matthew 15:14).
Buddha sends missionaries"Go forth, o bhikkhus, for the good of the many, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world, for the benefit, for the good, for the happiness of gods and men. Let not two go by one way. Preach the doctrine that is beautiful in its beginning, beautiful in its middle, and beautiful in its ending. Declare the holy life in its purity, completely both in the spirit and the letter.[Mahavagga Ch 5, Vinaya Pitaka]"
Jesus sends missionariesTherefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:19).
Buddha helps outcastes (Thag 12.2), lepers (Ud 5.3) and the courtesan like Ambapali (Digha Nikaya 16: Maha-parinibbana Sutta)
Jesus helps outcaste lepers (Luke 17:11-19) and "sinful women" like Mary Magdalene or Mary of Bethany (Luke 7:36-50)
Buddha declares:
Open are the doors to the Deathless to those with ears. Let them show their conviction.[Ariyapariyesana Sutta]

Christ declares after defeating Satan:

Repent! for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Matthew 4:17

Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear."(Mark 4:23)
Buddha can walk on water and walk through walls:

He goes unimpeded through walls, ramparts, and mountains as if through space. He walks on water without sinking as if it were dry land. (Digha Nikaya 11:Kevatta Sutta)
Jesus can walk on water and walk through walls:


And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. Mat 14:25 "Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them." (John 20:26)
Buddha and the Cross:

"This, monks, is called a monk whose cross-bar [38]is thrown off, 10 whose moat is filled in, whose pillar is pulled out, whose bolt is withdrawn, a noble one with banner lowered, burden placed down, unfettered. (Majjhima Nikaya 22:Alagaddupama Sutta I 139-140)
Jesus and the Cross:

And whosoever doth not bear his cross[39], and come after me, cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:27)
Buddha and the Sacrifice:

This Purusa is all that yet hath been and all that is to be; (Rig Veda Purusha Sukta)

Buddha is known as the MAHA PURUSHA. This Purusha is a human sacrifice or Purushamedha, from which all creation comes forth. "Maha -Purusha" in the Pali canon, the Digha Nikaya, in the discourse titled "Sutra of the Marks" (Pali: Lakkhana Sutta).Griffith (1899)

:"man, the noblest victim, being actually or symbolically sacrificed ... and men and women of various tribes, figures, complexions, characters, and professions being attached to the sacrificial stakes in place of the tame and wild animals enumerated in Book XXIV [VS 24]. These nominal victims were afterwards released uninjured, and, so far as the text of the White Yajurveda goes, the whole ceremony was merely emblematical."

The ceremony evokes the mythical sacrifice of Purusha, the "Cosmic Man", and the officiating Brahman recites the Purusha sukta to the assembled human victims (RV 10.90 = AVS 5.19.6 = VS 31.1–16).

From the body of the Purusha all things come forth.

In this human sacrifice, the Purusha is tied to a stake and symbolically killed.
Jesus and the Sacrifice:

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. (John 1)

Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1)

12For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. (1cor 12:12)
Buddha's Words are the food of everlasting life -- ambrosia or amrit in several places:

Having drunk this Dhamma medicine,

you will be ageless and beyond death;

having developed and seen the truth,

you will be quenched, free from craving.

MN 18 Madhupindika Sutta The Ball of Honey

Knowing, the Blessed One knows; seeing, he sees. He is the Eye, he is Knowledge, he is Dhamma, he

is Brahma. He is the speaker, the proclaimer, the elucidator of meaning, the giver of the Deathless, the

lord of the Dhamma, the Tathagata.


Homage to you so nobly bred.

Homage to you amongst men supreme.

Peerless are you in all the world.

May all worship be given to you.
"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you" (6:53).

Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but my Father give you the true bread from heaven&(John 6:32).
HEAVENLY BEINGS DRESSED IN PURE WHITE LOOKING AFTER BUDDHA:

Asita the seer, in his mid-day meditation,
saw the devas of the Group of Thirty
exultant, ecstatic
dressed in pure white, honoring Indra,
holding up banners, cheering wildly,
& on seeing the devas so joyful & happy,
having paid his respects, he said:
John 20:11-18

12 and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet.

Humans Were Angelic Like Beings absent of Lust before falling.

Vāsežž ha, when, sooner or later, after the lapse of a long, long period, this world passed away. And when this happens, beings have mostly been reborn in the World of Radiance; and there they dwell, made of mind, feeding on rapture, self-luminous, traversing the air, continuing in glory; and thus they remain for a long, long period of time. There comes also a time, Vāsežž ha, when sooner or later this world begins to re-evolve. When this happens, beings who had deceased from the World of Radiance, usually [85] come to life as humans.> And in measure as they, thus feeding, went on existing, so did the bodies of those beings become even more solid, and the divergence in their comeliness more pronounced. In the female appeared the distinctive features of the female, 3 in the male those of the male. Then truly did woman contemplate man too closely, and man, woman. In them contemplating over much the one the other, passion arose and burning entered their body. They in consequence thereof followed their lusts. (Aganna Sutta)

Humans Were Angelic Like Beings absent of Lust before falling.

Marriage is a result of sin, angel like after resurection:
 
"You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures, or the power of God. "For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. (Matthew 22:29-30)
