    DP=Divine Principle, the New Revelation by korean Sun Myung Moonhttp://www.unification.net/dp73/

  • Jesus was to come upon this worldwide foundation of preparation, and through his teachings
    he was to bring together Judaism, Hellenism, Buddhism and Confucianism.
    He was to unify all religions and civilizations into one worldwide civilization
    founded upon the Christian Gospel. /DP page 327
    This phenomenal period of preparation for the messiah occurred throughout the civilized world with remarkable coincidence. No adequate explanation has ever been offered for this global phenomenon. In the context of the Principle, however, this period of religious awakening is clearly explained. It is simply God prepating the world for the birth of the true parents and the subsequent expansion of the original ideal. God provided visions of truth and love to Lao Tzu, Confucius, sages in the Vedic tradition, Mahavira, Lord Buddha and Zarathustra, who established lasting religious traditions, and God inspired philosophers, scientists and artists who pioneered new vistas of human knowledge and creativity.

  • The lotus (Sanskrit and Tibetan padma) is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols and one of the most poignant representations of Buddhist teaching.
    The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above the water, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.
    Though there are other water plants that bloom above the water, it is only the lotus which, owing to the strength of its stem, regularly rises eight to twelve inches above the surface.

  • the Four Noble Truths, the "elephant's footprint" that contains within itself all the essential teachings of the Buddha.
  • The Ten Commandments of Hinduism according to sage Patanjali (PYS 2.30-2.32), are: (1) Nonviolence, (2) Truthfulness, (3) Non-steal­ing, (4) Celibacy or sense control, (5) Non-greed, (6) Purity of thought, word, and deed, (7) Contentment, (8) Austerity or renuncia­tion, (9) Study of scriptures, and (10) Surrendering to God with faith­ful loving devotion.Compare these with the ten basic teachings of the Bible: (1) Thou shall not kill, (2) Do not lie, (3) Do not steal, (4) Do not commit adultery, (5) Do not covet, (6) Do not divorce your wife, (7) Do for others what you want them to do for you, (8) If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other cheek, (9) Love your neighbor as yourself, and (10) Love the Lord with all thy heart.The Eightfold Noble Path of Buddhism are: Right view, right thought, right speech, right deeds, right livelihood, right effort, right resolve, and right meditation. Abstinence from all evil, performance of good acts, and purification of the mind is the doctrine of Buddha.The five cardinal principles of Islam are: (1) Faith in God, His message, and His messengers; (2) Meditation and prayer on the glory, greatness, and the message of God for spiritual growth; (3) Helping others by giving charity; (4) Austerity for self-purification by fasting in the month of Ramadan; and (5) Pilgrimage to the Holy places.All Great Masters have given us Truth revealed by the Supreme. Krishna taught us to feel spiritual oneness by seeing divinity in each and everyone. Buddha taught us to purify ourselves and have compassion for all creatures. Christ asked us to love all beings as we love ourselves. Muhammad taught us to submit to the will of God and act like His instruments.In some religions, however, only the members of one’s own sect are considered favorites of God, and others are consid­ered infidels. The Vedas teach not only mere religious tolerance but the acceptance of all other religions and prophets as analogous to one’s own. The Vedas say: Let noble thoughts come to us from everywhere (RV 1.89.01). Different religious teachings are but different ex­pressions of the Supreme. They are to be respected, not regarded as instruments of division. The dignity and welfare of humanity lie in the unity of races and religion (Swami Harihar). True knowledge of relig­ion breaks down all barriers, including the barriers between faiths (Gandhi). Any religion that creates walls of conflict and hatred among people in the name of God is not a religion, but selfish politics in disguise. We have no right to criticize any religion, sect, or cult in any way. Differences in human interpretation of scriptures ¾ the transcendent voice ¾ are due to taking the literal meaning, prejudice, ignorance, taking lines out of context, as well as distortion, misinterpretation, and interpolation with personal selfish motives. Profound Gratitude to http://www.gita-society.com/section2/2_chap_16.htm

  • The conch shell has survived as the original horn trumpet since time immemorial. Ancient Indian epics describe how each hero of mythical warfare carried a mighty white conch shell, which often bore a personal name. It is one of the main emblems of Vishnu, and his conch bears the name of Panchajanya, meaning 'having control over the five classes of beings.' Arjuna's (hero of the Mahabharata) mighty conch was known as Devadatta, whose triumphant blast brought terror to the enemy. /Wikipedia 
  • The lotus does not grow in Tibet and so Tibetan art has only stylized versions of it. Nevertheless, it is one of Buddhism's best recognized motifs since every important deity is associated in some manner with the lotus, either being seated upon it or holding one in their hands.
  • The wheel consists of three basic parts: the hub, the rim, and spokes (generally eight in number). Its underlying form is that of a circle, which is recognized across all traditions as a shape that is complete and perfect in itself, qualities which inform the teachings of the Buddha too.
  • Above the mountain is the dome of the sky. This is symbolized by the umbrella, whose important function is to cast a shadow, the shadow of protection. The dictionary defines a parasol as an umbrella used for protection from the sun. Thus its function is to protect exclusively from the heat rather than the rain - as the word 'parasol,' meaning 'to hold off the sun,' and 'umbrella,' meaning 'little shade,' similarly imply. The Sanskrit term 'chattra,' also means 'mushroom,' in an obvious reference to its shape.
  • The endless knot is a closed, graphic ornament composed of right-angled, intertwined lines. It is conjectured that it may have evolved from an ancient naga symbol with two stylized snakes.
  • This symbol consists of two fishes, which usually appear standing vertically with heads turned inwards towards each other.
    The pair of fishes originated as an ancient pre-Buddhist symbol of the two sacred rivers of India, Ganga and Yamuna. Symbolically, these two rivers represent the lunar and solar channels, which originate in the nostrils and carry the alternating rhythms of breath or prana. In Buddhism, the golden fishes symbolize happiness, as they have complete freedom in water. They represent fertility and abundance as they multiply very rapidly. Fish often swim in pairs, and in China they represented conjugal unity and fidelity, where a pair of fishes would often be given as a wedding present.
    Both Jesus Christ and Buddha are known as 'fisher of men,' because they save mortals from the ocean of suffering.
  • In Sanskrit, the banner or sign of victory is known as the dhvaja, meaning standard, flag or ensign. Originally, the victory banner was a military standard carried in ancient Indian warfare, and bore the specific insignia of its champion. For example in the Mahabharata, Krishna's chariot was adorned with a banner showing the image of the monkey-god Hanuman.
    The victory banner was adopted by early Buddhism as an emblem of the Buddha's enlightenment, heralding the triumph of knowledge over ignorance. It is said to have been placed on the summit of Mt. Meru by Buddha himself, symbolizing his victory over the entire universe. Again, Mount Meru here is believed to be the central axis supporting the world.
    The flag of victory also denotes Buddha's triumph over Mara, who personifies hindrances on the path to spiritual realization. Specifically, there are said to be four types of Maras, each one representing an individual hurdle on the path to spiritual progress. These are:
    1). The Mara of Emotional Defilement
    2). Mara of Passion
    3). Mara of the Fear of Death
    4). Mara of Pride and Lust
  • The vase is a fat-bellied vessel with a short, slim neck. On top, at the opening, there is a large jewel indicating that it is a treasure vase.
    Its symbolic meaning was almost always associated with the ideas of storage and the satisfaction of material desires. In the sagas and fairytales of many different cultures, for example, there is the recurring idea of an inexhaustible vessel.

    3. 3. In Buddhism today, many people pray for blessing in front of a statue of Buddha. The external difference between the subject and the object in this instance would be enormous. However, in the world of heart, there would be no difference. If they believe and connect to it as God by the feelings inspired there, then God does not abandon such minds. He fulfills their wishes.
    4. 4. The phrase "a wish come true" originates from this. When we consider these things, our past and present life have been overly insensitive and unsentimental. We have had a desolate cosmic view. You should feel sorrow about this. If you become a person who does feel sorrow about this situation, then you will be called "a new person" in the new world and will be able to take responsibility for the new age.
    5. 5. I have confidence this is true. We should become a people who can forget our own sad feelings by the joy we feel from looking at growing grass, instead of frowning and lamenting as we look at our environment and the problems of society. If there is such a person, he would remain in the new age. If there is a person who aspires to the ideal and heartistic world, he would indeed try desperately to make a certain relationship with God. /SMM Longing for Eden Genesis 2:1-25 May 24, 1959,
    6. 6. 1965 I stayed in Japan for two weeks before I came here. During that time, five leading members of Buddhism and Shintoism joined our group through the guidance and messages of the spirit world. In this way, unification of the world will be fulfilled. Otherwise, how could we unify all religions?
    7. 7. 1965 Each religious founder, in order to start his mission, has had some responsibility. On the final day when God's will is completely fulfilled, these founders are to bring a certain number of dedicated followers to God.
    8. 8. 1965 The higher and larger the religion, the more people the founders must bring on the final day. Supposing Buddha has 10 million people to bring to God. Then Buddha is responsible for testifying to his followers what our Leader has done, and what our truth stands for. /SMM March and April 1965
    9. 9. Buddhism teaches, "To benefit yourself, give benefit to others." This means that whatever one does for others will ultimately benefit oneself. This teaching contains a very profound truth. /Bo Hi Pak in Messiah I

    11. 11. The correlation between the Buddhist doctrine of karma and the Unification teaching on sin which affirms collective and inherited dimensions (of sin) that determine the individual's real conditions of existence.
    12. 12. The correlation between the Buddhist doctrine of karma and the Unification teaching on sin which affirms collective and inherited dimensions (of sin) that determine the individual's real conditions of existence. In their ascetic practices both Unificationists and Buddhists eschew the extremes of self-mortification which is understood by the former to enhance self-righteousness and by the latter to heighten the illusion of the "self."

In their ascetic practices both Unificationists and Buddhists eschew the extremes of self-mortification which is understood by the former to enhance self-righteousness and by the latter to heighten the illusion of the "self." For Unificationism, however, ascetic practice has the purpose of re-orienting sense experience towards G o d whereas in Buddhism the overcoming of craving leads to the awareness of no-self.
    14. 14. The color of the lotus has an important bearing on the symbology associated with it: White Lotus (Skt. pundarika; Tib. pad ma dkar po): This represents the state of spiritual perfection and total mental purity (bodhi). It is associated with the White Tara and proclaims her perfect nature, a quality which is reinforced by the color of her body.
    15. 15. • Pink Lotus (Skt. padma; Tib. pad ma dmar po): This the supreme lotus, generally reserved for the highest deity. Thus naturally it is associated with the Great Buddha himself.
    16. 16. • Red Lotus (Skt. kamala; Tib: pad ma chu skyes): This signifies the original nature and purity of the heart (hrdya). It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion and all other qualities of the heart. It is the flower of Avalokiteshvara, the bodhisattva of compassion.
    17. 17. Blue Lotus (Skt. utpala; Tib. ut pa la): This is a symbol of the victory of the spirit over the senses, and signifies the wisdom of knowledge. Not surprisingly, it is the preferred flower of Manjushri, the bodhisattva of wisdom.
    18. 18. The Coming Buddha • According to Buddhist scripture, Gautama predicted that at some future time another Buddha would come to help men set up an ideal kingdom of righteousness and peace. The coming Buddha is called Mettaya, (Sanskrit: Maitreya) meaning "love."
    19. 19. The Coming Buddha • According to Buddhist scripture, Gautama predicted that at some future time another Buddha would come to help men set up an ideal kingdom of righteousness and peace. The coming Buddha is called Mettaya, (Sanskrit: Maitreya) meaning "love." • There will no longer be any killing, stealing, adultery, drunkenness, filth or mud huts. The cities will all be lighted; parks and gardens will abound. Then, man will enjoy heaven on earth.

Then, man will enjoy heaven on earth. • Gautama is not expected to return; Maitreya is a different person whose mission and status are identical to that of Gautama. According to the oldest texts, Buddha does not promise to come back; what he promises is that Maitreya will become the next Buddha whose success will be far greater than his own. Also, Maitreya will bring to fulfillment the Buddhist Dhamma and inaugurate an era of cosmic bliss; he will do so as a teacher and holy man.

The teachings of Zen include various sources of Maha-ya-na thought, including the Prajña-pa-ramita- literature, Madhyamaka, Yoga-ca-ra and the Tatha-gatagarbha Sutras. The emergence of Zen as a distinct school of Buddhism was first documented in China in the 7th century CE. From China, Zen spread south to Vietnam, and east to Korea and Japan

    49. 49. When you are lying down comfortably, concentrate on your senses. Begin with the sense of touch. • Feel your skin. • Feel any breeze, whether it's hot or cold, the pressure of your clothing, the bed, etc. on your body. • Close your eyes. 1. RELAX
    50. 50. • Focus your mind. While you do your most loathed chore, again concentrate on physical sensation. Feel the warmth of the dishwater on your hands. Try to distinguish smells, sound, or sense of touch and texture. • Focus on one sensation at a time. When I'm ironing, I find the sound of steam boiling from the iron especially pleasing. • Focus on those sensations you find most pleasant. 2. WASHING THE DISHES
    51. 51. • Slow down when you eat. It will make no more than five minutes' difference • When eating, concentrate on the taste and texture of what you put inside. 3. FOOD
    52. 52. • Using the Zen method, visualize and experience the sensation of it entering your body and fusing with your system. • Concentrate on the energy and health that it gives you. • Smell the food and see it, feel the utensils in your hands. • Become entirely involved in the eating process with both body and mind. • Stop eating when you feel you have had just enough; not too much. 3. FOOD
    53. 53. • Using the Zen method, visualize and experience the sensation of it entering your body and fusing with your system. • Concentrate on the energy and health that it gives you. 3. FOOD
    54. 54. • Eat again only when you feel hungry and continue applying the Zen method. • Get to know your body and its needs. 3. FOOD
    55. 55. • Water is even more essential to life than food. • Required six to eight glasses of water a day. • Drinking a lot of water helps to keep your weight down and your health up. • Combining water drinking with Zen enhances its benefit. 4. WATER
    56. 56. • Drinking water in its unadulterated form is both refreshing and energizing. • When you feel tired or hot, leave the soft drinks and beer in the fridge. • Open the tap. Put your hand under it until the water is at its coldest. • Concentrate on the physical sensation of it. 4. WATER
    57. 57. • Fill a glass and drink the water. • As with the eating exercise, feel the path of the water into your body. • Feel it refreshing you and blessing your cells with its health. • Both your body and mind will be energized. 4. WATER
    58. 58. • Focus on your muscles and how they contract and relax. • Focus on one muscle group at a time. • Also concentrate on contracting and relaxing the muscle consciously as you exercise it. • In this way not only your body is involved; your mind also contributes greatly to sculpting the perfect you. 5. BODY AND MIND
    59. 59. • In any mental activity, your enjoyment is increased using Zen. • Before sitting down to a mental activity, breathe deeply a few times. • Then begin with the physical senses. 5. BODY AND MIND
    60. 60. • Concentrate on seeing the exact shade of the text, or whatever you are studying. • Look at the texture of the material. • Feel it with your fingers. • Become aware of the scent emanating from the pages. 5. BODY AND MIND
    61. 61. • Then concentrate on the words and ideas entering your head. • You can almost feel them. • Feel your mind processing what you are studying. • This will both benefit and improve studying, or any mental activity that you indulge in. 5. BODY AND MIND
    62. 62. • Zen concentration will enhance your sense of enjoyment in whatever it is you're doing. • If it's something you love, such as stroking a cat, listening to music, or playing in the pool, well-being is enhanced. 6. ZEN IN EVERYTHING
    63. 63. • If it is something you hate - washing the car, cleaning, cooking – a feeling of joy and pride in you. • The Zen principle of concentration is not only fabulous for enhancing enjoyment. It will do wonders for your physical health as well. 6. ZEN IN EVERYTHING
    64. 64. Buddhism • personal salvation like Christianity seeking personal salvation Detachments = Nirvana! • Buddhas teaching, (coming Matreya) • salvation only spiritual • children born with suffering path is a web of illusion, and longing for liberation. • The Coming Matreya Differences Unificationism • Family salvation • Two Saviours – True Parents • Salvation both physical & spiritual • Children born without orig. sin • Continued revelation = Divine Princ, Biography, CheonSyeongGeong, 1000 Volumes
    65. 65. Buddhism The thought manifests as the word; the word manifests as the deed; the deed develops into habit; and the habit hardens into character- So watch the thought and its ways with care; and let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings. As the shadow follows the body, as we think, so we become. /Dhammapada Similarities Unificationism Unificationn Thought Words affect our thought, so speaking good words will help recovery from illness. This is in accord with UT: The universe was created through Logos and performs its movements in accordance with Logos; in other words, the universe is supported by Logos. Human beings also were created through Logos, and their lives should be in complete accordance with Logos. Thus, the human being is a being of logos.

And there was a door on the east and a door on the south, a door on the north and a door on the west - and when the teacher comes, he always has to come through the eastern gate. In the Holy City of Jerusalem there is an eastern gate long since sealed and blocked. It will never be opened until the new teacher comes. From the east comes mysticism - a willingness to be absorbed in God – God is not something apart - he is something within. From the south comes all the beauty, the ritual - these things which adorn and make beautiful the message. From the north came rational thought clear thinking - reformation - and change. From the west came the critical, scientific analysis.

    77. 77. Quote: Sung Han Lees, messages from Spiritual World The Buddha's Message to Buddhists and Believers in Other Religions “Dear Buddhists, I am not saying that your way of life thus far has been wrong. Like Jesus, in my time I also did my best to guide humankind in the right direction. However, with the passing of time, the tasks needed for the salvation of humankind have changed. What I am trying to do is to engraft the fruit of Buddhists who were raised through my methods of spiritual cultivation. Please study the Unification Principle. You will find there a considerable number of truths that also flow through the teachings of Buddhism. Do not be immersed in old-fashioned ideas and concepts, but by accepting the new truth, engraft it to the truth of Buddhism. Then, I am sure that a wonderful passage of faith will open to you.”
    78. 78. “In this age Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the Buddha for whom you have been waiting. Make a special condition as a Buddhist at a shrine. It is time for you to be true to the highest standard of Buddhist integrity. Do not reject the new Buddha, who is to come in the Completed Testament Age. Do not reject his truth. Demonstrate the virtue of compassion as practiced by numerous Buddhists who have cultivated their spirituality. Do not look for faults in others, but act with humility and prudence. What is truth? Depending on the historical era, the direction for human beings can change. Look at the world of nature. All things God created can change in color and size, depending on the environment, but the species remain the same. Who can quell the voice of the original mind, through which human beings are striving to lead a life of faith? However, depending on the sound of the voice of the original mind, the mode of human life vary, bringing different aspects of joy to God.”
    79. 79. “Therefore, do not be fixed on an old-fashioned idea. Expand the horizon of your ideas and views. If I told you Jesus and Buddha are getting along as brothers, you Buddhists would not believe me. However, I cannot help it. God wants us to work together as one. In your opinion, what would Jesus call Buddha? He calls him "Honored Buddha" with a smile and a soft voice, always being humble. Once Buddha speaks, he always responds positively, with a bright and cheerful expression, saying: "Yes, right," " That is correct," and "Let's do it." Dear fellow Buddhists and Christians, as Heaven and Earth are united as one, bringing the world of peace, should the Earth not be united as well? Let us be unified by the new truth in this new era. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is leading the Completed Testament Age, and he is the Buddha to come. This is the conclusion drawn in these seminars of the four major religious founders. Let us now liberate God, by bringing oneness between Buddhism and Christianity. “ /Spir Wrld April 6, 2001
