While in many countries in Asia and the West, the balance of believers tilts heavily in favor of one religion or the other, in Korea Christianity and Buddhism share a more or less equal number of faithful. This situation makes it all the more important for the dialogue between them to reach beyond the scholarly pursuits of specialists to the public at large. This, in turn, requires a shift from merely doctrinal issues to questions aff ecting the spirituality of ordinary believers.Monasticism, Buddhist and Christian represents a step in that direction. By engaging experts in the monastic traditions of the two religions, attention is drawn to a striking number of similarities both in general aspirations to a life of devotion as well as in the specifi c content of spiritual practice.
