Buddha Nature Revealed: Loving Activism – Ep. 119
In this podcast Professor Thurman discusses how Buddha Nature can be understood as being a form of Loving Activism found through the realization of Emptiness. Includes a reading from the introduction to the AIBS Publication “Sublime Continuum Treatise Commentary” by Bo Jiang.
Emptiness, or selflessness, is a foundation in all forms of Buddhist thought & education. In contemporary scholarship, its critical, negational impact is widely misunderstood as a form of nihilism.
Revealing the radically life affirming call to action to all sensitive beings found in the Buddha’s teachings through the recent works by the Wachowski sisters (The Sense8 Netflix Television Series & The Cloud Atlas) Professor Thurman unpacks the Buddhist Centrist notion of Buddha Nature in humorous language even today’s binge watching seekers can understand.
