Other talks from Triratna Buddhist Order

Buddhism in the Context of Contemporary Culture

by Saramati and Munisha (2008)

Here's another talk from the series organised by 'Dharmapala College' to mark the 40th anniversary of the Western Buddhist Order, with a chance for questions and comments from the audience. The series looked at the Order and the FWBO taken together - past and future: its own emphases, and its relationship to the whole Buddhist tradition...

Saramati and Munisha continue the theme with two complementary takes on the way Buddhism is meeting the realities of the 21st Century - its impact on general culture, and vice-versa. Saramati gives us a scholarly, historical perspective on things, Munisha's experience of working with educators in the classroom offers an insight into the issues facing anyone concerned to make their presentation of Buddhist meaningful in today's world.

Talk given at the national Order weekend, Wymondham College, March 2008
