Tibet, Ceylon, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam. One of its varieties, called Zen, has attracted a small but articulate following among western intellectuals. Twenty years ago, students of world religions were calling bbud- dhism a moribund faith. But as a traditional religion of the East, It has received a powerful stimulus from the wave of nationalist feeling that has swept over Asian countries since World War II. Its come-back as a popular religion is dramatized by the current controversy in Viet Nam, where Buddhists are bitterly protesting against alleged persecution by the government of President Ngo Dinh Diem, a Roman Catholic. Buddhism is sometimes called "Hindu Protestantism." It originated in India 2,500 years ago as a protest or reform movement within Hinduism. Founded By Prince Its founder was an enormously wealthy Indian prince, Sid- dliartha Guatama, who was born about 560 B.C. in a northern province about 100 miles from Bernares. Legend says that Gautama had three palaces and 40.000 dancing girls to keep him amused. But he learned early in happiness. When he was about 29 years old, he abandoned his sumptuous life as a prince and went into the forest, dressed in rags, to seek enlightenment in the solitary life of a Hindu ascetic. No one ever practiced mortification of the flesh with greater dedication than Guatama. He fasted (eating one bean a day) un|jl his spine could be seen through his shrunken tomach. But he found no answer to his questions about life, and concluded that extreme asceticism was no better than luxury as a pathway to happiness. After six years of futile searching, Guatama seated himself one evening beneath the shade of a fig tree near the village of Gaya in northeast India. He vowed that he would sit right there until he saw the light. According to Buddhist scriptures, he remained for 49 days. He emerged from this experience as the Buddha, or "the enlightened one." For the next 45 years, he walked from one Indian village to another, sharing his new insights with all who would listen, and founding an order of monks to practice his preccepts and pass on his message. Comprise A Philosophy Buddha's original teachings constitute a philosophy of life rather than a religion. He taught that human life is characterized by suffering, and the basic cause of suffering is "tanha," a word which if often translated as "desire" but which actually connotes selfish craving, the tendency in | every person to seek his own private happiness. ! To break free from slavery to "tanha," Buddha said men must follow "the eightfold path" of right knowledge, right aspiration, right speech, right behavior, right occupation, right effort, right thinking and right absorption. Under each of these eight headings, he laid down rules for rigorous self-discipline. Buddhists were forbidden to lie, steal or kill any living creature, including animals •and insects. They were allowed to eat only what they could beg, and then just enough to keep the body alive and functioning. Alcoholic beverages and sex relations were strictly forbidden. Buddha said this monastic, way of life, if earnestly practiced, would eventually lead to "nirvana." Exactly what he meant by tliis much-abused term is hard to determine from his authenticated sayings. At times, he seerns to think of nirvana as a state of nothingness, a final blotting out of human individuality (and hence of the selfish cravings which cause suffering.) At other points, he speaks of nirvana in terms comparable to those which a Christian mystic might use to describe ecstatic union with God. preserved By Monks Today the austere philosophy of Buddha is preserved primarily by the so-called "Theravada" monks of Burma, Ceylon, Thailand and Cambo <5fr. The popular ril.ual, nnd salvation is something man receives by divine grace, rather than something he must earn by rigorous self-denial. Laymen as well as monks can hone to reach nirvana, which In Mahayana Buddhism sounds rather like a primitive Christian version ol heaven. Zen is a special case. It developed in China in the fith Century A.D., ,and by the 12th Century had reached Japan, where it took root and still flowers. The heart of Zen is the conviction that real truth can never be expressed or understood in verbal formulae, but can only be directly experienced through a flash of intuition or enlightenment called "satori." To drive home the futility of reason as a road to truth, Zen masters require their disciriles to spend endless hours working on "koans" or nonsense problems to which there is no rational solution.

Jews May Ndt Ignore Jesus In Future By GEORGE W. CORNBLt Associated Ptm licllglrtn Writer History's most Influential Jew, Jesus, traditionally has been Ignored in the annals of Judaism, but a noted Jewish scholar predicts future works'will include reference to the ancient Galilean. Not a divinity because man, as Christians regard Him, but as a wise and inspiring teacher. Dr. Harry A. Wolfson, professor of Hebrew literature and philosophy emeritus at Harvard University, says fuller restoration- of Jewish literary treasures doubtlessly 'will include among them the sermons and parables of Jesus." He adds that "it is not as a returning hero" that Jesus will be restored, and not as a beautified saint nor as an "individual to be worshiped .and exalted above others," but as one of the "wise, of blessed memory, who express the national genius of the people." Dr. Wolfson makes his forecast in a final, memorial issue of "The Menorah Journal," published in honor of its late editor, Henry Hurwitz. "The Jewish reclamation of Jesu- will not be brought about by efforts of evangelical piety on the part of some Jews, or by a sentimental yearning for what we haven't got," he says. "It will come about as a result of a wider and more comprehensive conception of the scope of Jewish learning and Jewish literature and of a general restoration of our lost literary treasures." Noting that Jesus has been "better known among non-Jews than among Jews" because of historical circumstances, Dr. Wolfson says Judaism nonetheless has absorbed much Christian influence. "A century of infiltration of Christian ideas into our life through all the agencies of education has robbed many of us of our essential Jewish character," he says. "In everything that guides our life and determines our views thereof, we have become Christianized, for we have somehow accepted Christ if not in the theological sense of a Savior at least in the historical sense of a civil- izer." As for the traditional Jewish position on Jesus, Dr. Wolfson says "Jesus is 'not a rejected prophet; at best He is a rejected sage. "The Jews did not put a limit to the books of the Bible in order to keep Jesus out; Jesus simply happened to come at a time when that body of literature, in the opinion of the authorities of the time, was practically closed."
