Manchester launch of Wisdom in Exile – Buddhism and Modern Times

Wisdom in Exile Manchester launch

Internationally renowned Buddhist meditation master Lama Jampa Thaye will be interviewed by Peter Popham, author and foreign correspondent, about his new book

Wisdom in Exile
Buddhism and Modern Times

This book examines the space that has arisen in contemporary culture, a space created by the failure of our dominant systems of thought. With its emphasis on bringing together intelligence and contemplative experience, Buddhism offers an authentic way to liberation from suffering in these modern times.

Wisdom in Exile examines how best the Buddha’s teachings might be understood and practised today-and argues that unless we discriminate between authentic and fake presentations and resist the temptation to assimilate it to contemporary ideologies, the opportunity for it to shape our lives will be lost and Buddhism itself is likely to remain a cultural memory as nothing more than a temporary fad.
