Back in January, Adhisthāna hosted a symposium on "Buddhist Modernism", exploring how Buddhism has been reshaped by its encounter with Western modernity.


The editors of the WBR each gave talks at the symposium on the subject of Buddhist Modernism, and Sanghadhara interviewed us for a podcast (available here) for The Buddhist Centre Online.


The talks from the symposium are now available to download from Free Buddhist Audio:


Exploring Buddhist Modernism: An Introduction

Dhivan


Romantic Buddhism

Silavādin


Sangharakshita as Buddhist Modernist: The Case of the Five Niyamas

Dhivan


Experience and Non-Experience, Revisited

Matt Drage

Please join us via Zoom to help us relaunch the Western Buddhist Review!


The Western Buddhist Review was originally published in 1994, and it has appeared periodically since then. Now, under the editorship of Dhivan, Silavādin and Matt Drage, we are ready to launch volume 7, with this new website, which will provide an exciting scholarly and intellectual point of reference for the Triratna community.

The launch event will take place on Monday 28 September 7.30–8.30pm (UK time).


Sanghadhara be interviewing the editors, Dhivan will give a history of the WBR, there will be a reading from Bhante, and a small ritual to conclude.
