Religion Without God, Part 1 - A Radical Community of Values

by Candradasa

The first talk in 'Religion without God', a four-part series looking at how you can have a full spiritual life as a 21st Century person without recourse to blind faith or setting yourself against the rational world we find ourselves in. The Buddha faced some of the same dilemmas as us in India in 500 BCE, and we face some new challenges with 2500 years of culture and experience in between his time and our own.

In this talk Candradasa looks at the three basic propositions offered by Buddhism as an alternative to theistic religion, and offers a personal exploration of the pitfalls for anyone trying to live out the Buddha's teachings, as well as the immense possibilities for a religious tradition without any god at the heart of it.

Talk given in Portsmouth, NH, October 2012.

This talk is part of the series Religion Without God.
