Not the same, but ultimately they are merely descriptions of the same thing. I recommend the works of Thich Nhat Hanh (whom Martin Luther King Jr nominated for the Nobel Prize for Peace). Two books you may be interested to read are:
"Living Buddha, Living Christ" Amazon.com: Living Buddha, Living Christ: Thich Nhat Hanh: Books
"Going Home - Jesus and Buddha as Brothers" Amazon.com: Going Home: Jesus and Buddha as Brothers: Thich Nhat Hanh: Books
