What is Buddhism? A Religion, A Philosophy Or Something Else?
Rigdzin Shikpo on his belief that the essence of Buddhism, buddha-dharma, is a way of approaching a universal truth.
How it’s not about learning dogma, but using meditation, to see through our misconceptions, break down our conceptual frameworks, until we unveil the underlying reality.
This talk was recorded at St Margaret’s Institute in Oxford on 14th Oct 2017.
