Bias, Racism + Buddhism – Ep. 176
Reincarnation as Buddha taught it to his community of mendicants suggests that everyone has at some time or another been born in every conceivable species, race, gender, or class. Professor Thurman opens this two part podcast discussing the Buddhist perspective on reincarnation and how the on rigid barriers such, caste, race, sex or class tend to be eroded through the acceptance of karmic biology.
Examining bias + racism on a personal level, Robert A.F. Thurman shares insights learned from the teachings of Jey Tsongkhapa, His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet and his life long study of Buddhism and the Buddhist Inner Sciences.
The second half of this week’s podcast is an in-depth guided Nine Fold Breath Meditation from the Yuthok Tradtion as taught by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang.
