Vatican calls on Catholics and Buddhists to work together to promote nonviolence

 | 

The Vatican has called on Catholics and Buddhists to work together to teach wider society the value of a nonviolent lifestyle, saying in a letter for an upcoming Buddhist holiday that the founders of the two faiths were alike in their promotion of peacemaking.

“Jesus Christ and the Buddha were promoters of nonviolence as well as peacemakers,” the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue writes in a letter issued Saturday for the upcoming Buddhist holiday of Vesakh.
