Ascended Master Gautama Buddha, April 8, 2007 through Kim Michaels.
I Gautama come to greet you. And surely, some in the West will wonder what the Buddha is doing interfering with their celebration of the resurrection of Christ. Yet, in heaven there is only oneness. So how could there ever be any separation between Christ and Buddha? I do indeed come to give you the Buddhic perspective on being the Christ in action.
For you see, my beloved, there is a difference in degree – not a difference in kind – between the missions of Christ and Buddha. They are in a sense like the Alpha and the Omega. The mission of the Living Christ in embodiment, the Word incarnate, is to go out and actively seek out people who are trapped in some mental box or other, or as we call it in Buddhism, who are trapped behind the veil of Maya, the veil of illusion created by Mara, the demons of this world, the prince of this world.
The role of the Living Christ is to go out and challenge these people’s illusions, in order to awaken them to the reality that there is something beyond the illusion, there is a different way to live. The Christ must be outgoing, must be active, must be challenging. And therefore, the Christ also incurs the wrath of those who will not be challenged, who will not change, who will not look in the mirror and pull that beam from their own eye.
And once people have been awakened and have followed the path of Christhood for a time, they will then be open to the path of the Buddha, which is the path of non-attachment. Where the two paths converge and become parallel tracks is for those students who are more mature and can see beyond the outer religions of Christianity and Buddhism. They can see that Christ and Buddha came to earth teaching the same universal teaching, the same universal path, only teaching it in different cultural contexts and with slightly different words.
This is an excerpt from a longer teaching. You can read the full dictation HERE.
