    Neither Buddhism nor Christianity exists in a 'pure' state, but always as rooted in indigenous cultures. In its origins each of these traditions was in fact indigenous, identified with particular places and periods. Re-emphasising this aspect could contribute to the often neglected dialogue of both with the indigenous religious traditions of today.
