Winter-Spring, 2020 Study Group
After Buddhism: rethinking the dharma for a secular age
by Stephen Batchelor
In his forward to After Buddhism, Batchelor states that this is his attempt to ‘…articulate the dharma in a contemporary language stripped of the metaphysical and cosmological views of ancient India. It is likewise [a] continuous attempt to divest the dharma of the trappings of dogma and priestly authority that continue to characterize the Buddhist religion….a part of a wider movement towards an unashamedly secular vision of what the Buddha taught.’
Over this ten-week Winter-Spring study group, we will be relying on After Buddhism: a workbook by Winton Higgins to give structure to our discussion of Batchelor’s After Buddhism.
The workbook is available from the publisher in multiple formats at: https://www.tuwhiri.nz/store. Or on confirming availability, you may purchase with your registration, one of five hard copies for $10.00.
