Secularity, religion and being human

Sydney dharma teacher Winton Higgins has shared a newly minted dharma talk with us entitled Secularity, religion and being human.

The admirers of the new kid on the block, secular Buddhism, he tells us, tell different stories about her and where she’s coming from, and those stories tell us more about where the storytellers are coming from than about the kid herself.
