Buddhist Political Engagements

October 5



Institute of Buddhist Studies, Berkeley

How has Buddhist thought, cosmology, or ethics been used to engage, disengage, critique, or conform to systems of social and political power? Graduate student presenters will explore the various discursive strategies Buddhists have used historically and contemporarily to reimagine Buddhist worlds in the present moment, to critique or support political systems, and develop practices and approaches to the path in line or at odds with social norms.
