God and Buddha: A Dialogue with Deepak Chopra and Robert Thurman (2000)
In this unprecedented dialogue, held at Tibet House New York, Deepak Chopra and Robert Thurman explore the ultimate harmonies between Buddhism and Vedanta. The Rishis, the sages of India, and the Buddha, the Enlightened One, teach the way to freedom from suffering.
Vedanta describe reality as magical projection of divine consciousness, which we all share. Buddhism teaches the total awareness of reality, awareness that embraces our ultimate oneness and our relative, or virtual individuality. When we know we are God, we connect to all being through Buddhahood.
