When we remove metaphysical belief from the Buddha’s pragmatic approach to a world shrouded in suffering, a secular path to an integrated and meaningful life emerges.
During February and March 2014, world-renowned Buddhist scholars, authors and teachers Martine and Stephen Batchelor will give talks, retreats and workshops in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Northern New South Wales, Brisbane and Cairns.
Highlights include an evening conversation between Stephen Batchelor and ABC Radio’s Rachael Kohn, and week-long retreats at Sine Cera in northern New South Wales.
So, what is distinctive about the Buddha’s teaching that sets it apart from mainstream Indian religious tradition? Why is it applicable to the modern western world? Through examining these and other questions, Stephen and Martine will be exploring the radical, non-mystical core of Siddhattha Gotama’s vision.
