Why Buddhism and the Modern World Need Each Other

An evening with David Loy

Friday, October 20, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The highest ideal of Western civilization (now globalized) has been to restructure our societies so that they are more socially just. The most important goal for Buddhism is to awaken and put an end to the dukkha (suffering) due to the delusion of a separate self. Today it has become obvious that we need both: not just because individual transformation and social transformation complement each other, but because each needs the other in order to be successful.

This is a stand-alone, talk open to the public which kicks off a weekend non-residential retreat led by David.  For more information and to register for the retreat, click here.
