A secular dharma
Our group YouTube channel explores the relationship between Buddhism, dharma, and the modern world. We are looking at what secular Buddhism or secular dharma means in contemporary times.
We are graduates of the Bodhi College two year Secular Dharma course, run by Stephen Batchelor, but the videos here are our own musings and interpretations on the concepts introduced on that course, alongside a wide variety of other sources from philosophy, art, science, information technology, and other ideas and frameworks we think may be relevant.
The aim is to try to find out what the dharma is, how can it be defined? and to explore connections with ideas that were not available when Gautama expounded his thoughts.
This channel and forum are called secular dharma but we are not convinced that this is the right name as dharma is hardly an everyday term in the west so secular dharma is a working title.
