Mind Or Matter? Awakening and the Restructuring of Mind

by Viryadeva (2022)

In this series of three workshops, Viraydeva is unpacking a fundamental Buddhist idea: the world as we know it is determined not by objective facts, but by the mind. In this final week, drawing on his recent conversation with philosopher Bernardo Kastrup, Viryadeva shows what a mind-only perspective means for practising the Buddhist path. How does the structure of consciousness need to change for a mind to "wake up"? And how does this affect our understanding of what Buddhism is really telling us about the evolution of life, the universe and everything?
