Q  Can you tell me the difference between the teachings of the Gita and those of Buddha as they seem to say different things?

A  Unfortunately, I cannot answer this question as I am not proficient in the teachings of Buddha. However, there are many paths to the same goal. Buddha, Mohammed, Mahavir and Christ explored these different paths to the Truth. Different paths are necessary because there are different types of people. At the essence, all the great masters speak of the same thing, overcoming our base, selfish egos to realise our Infinitude. They all spoke of the same eternal principles. The fundamentals of truth, knowledge, love and service remain the same for every path.
