“How well do you know Buddhism?”
The Buddhism we bump into in the West is not the austere, contemplative wisdom that emerged from Siddhartha in the East. Modern western Buddhism has been pillaged by postmodernism in much the same way as all systems of faith. In today’s podcast and post I will show that reducing enlightenment to a meme, and cherry picking a few ideas with essentially an atheistic, amoral existence, is not subscribing to Buddhism.
Join me now as we see why this system of faith has been preferentially highjacked by the West, and what it really means to pursue an enlightened life.
