“Early Buddhism” refers to the teachings given by the historical Buddha (Gotama) before they became codified into the various orthodoxies of the Buddhist religion.
During this evening of conversation, John, Stephen and Akincano explore what was distinctive in these teachings that distinguished them from the Indian culture of Gotama’s time. They also argue for a return to his original vision as an effective means to address the range of issues that confront people living in today’s world.
With the introduction of mindfulness into healthcare, education, business and other fields, Buddhist meditation is now entering the mainstream of modern societies to an unprecedented degree.
