Alexander Wynne joins us to speak about how we may creatively engage with tradition.
Just today the latest issue of Buddhadharma arrived in my mailbox, with a cover story about the mindfulness movement. The piece was introduced by my friend Jenny Wilks, who like many of us lives in the two overlapping but perhaps growing apart worlds of Buddhism, and mindfulness. What does that mean for the tradition, and what are some of the important questions around creative engagement with contemporary society?
Alexander Wynne, a former student of Richard Gombrich, is currently Academic Head of the Dhammachai Tipiṭaka Project, at Wat Phra Dhammakaya, preparing a critical edition of the Pali canon. He is the author of Buddhism: An Introduction, The Origin of Buddhist Meditation, and Mahabharata Book Twelve (Volume 3): “The Book of Liberation”.
So, sit back, relax, and have a nice Jasmine Tranquili-Tea.
