Sangha As a Radical Alternative to Capitalism and Modern Youth Culture

by Kara Moses (2013)

Young Peoples facilitator Kara Moses talks about why industrialised Capitalist society presents us with particularly challenging conditions for Buddhist practise, and how the Sangha provides a radical positive alternative - with a focus on the younger Sangha and modern youth culture.

Kara explains the capitalist socio-economic system in simple terms and presents this as a direct contradiction to a Buddhist vision of society.

This talk was given at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre on Triratna Day 2013, which was hosted by the Yobs (Birmingham Young Buddhists) group, with a theme of Gratitude.
