I was asked the other day whether it is possible for a Catholic to be a Buddhist. I’m not sure of this but I do know that the Buddha, Siddahrta Gautama is revered as a Catholic saint. Today is the feast day of saints Baarlam and Josephat. The story of Josephat is the same as that told of Siddharta Gautama so in Josaphat, the Buddha had been venerated as a Christian saint for over a thousand years.
