Human Rights & Buddhism : Buddhist History 101 – Ep. 46
Prince Siddhartha was asserting his human right to seek his own flourishing and fulfillment as a human individual rather than serve the community as a king at the wish of his father and of his society. He didn’t consider that he was able to really help people who he was supposed to be helping as their ruler. In this episode Professor Thurman discusses the topic of human rights and buddhism, as well as other engaging topics.
This episode was recorded on December 10, 2015 in a class taught by Professor Thurman.
