Insights into Christianity from Studying Hòa Hảo Buddhism

1/3/70

Amb. Quinn describes his encounter with a particular sect of Buddhism that had developed along the lower branch of the Mekong River in Vietnam. It had been founded by a holy man named Huynh Phu So, known as Duc Thay, or “Venerable Teacher,” So had become “enlightened” by an extended stay on a mountain in the Vietnamese-Cambodian border area, the parallels of So’s existence with the life of Jesus caused Amb. Quinn to consider how the Apostles of Jesus may have viewed Christ’s nature 2000 years earlier.
