Individualism, Materialism and the Challenges of the Dharma

by Saccanama (2020)

After exploring the relationship between the transcendental (lokuttara) and historical time, Saccanama looks at the challenges facing us at this particular point in history. Individualism and materialism present challenges both to our society and to our practice of the Dharma. Put them together and we have a form of capitalism which is so dominant that it becomes impossible to imagine any other system. Set against this, the Dharma is always challenging, particularly in a fundamental form such as the Four Noble Truths which we will explore in the remaining talks in the series.

This talk is part of the series Challenging Dharma for Challenging Times.
