This chapter contains three selections from D. T. Suzuki's book Mysticism: Christian and Buddhist. The first is an excerpt from the essay, “Meister Eckhart and Buddhism,” in which Suzuki comments on the views of the medieval German Dominican preacher and theologian Eckhart von Hochheim, also known as Meister Eckhart, about time and creation as well as his close kinship with Mahayana Buddhism and especially with Zen Buddhism in regard to the doctrine of emptiness. The second selection, “Living in the Light of Eternity,” deals with the concepts of eternity and oneness in writings of Eastern and Western figures, including philosophers, theologians, and poets. The third selection, “Crucifixion and Enlightenment,” presents Suzuki's opinions on Christianity, and particularly the concepts of crucifixion and resurrection.

Keywords:   eternity, D. T. Suzuki, Eckhart von Hochheim, creation, Buddhism, emptiness, oneness, Christianity, crucifixion, resurrection
