Vaddhaka introducing themes from his book.
Vaddhaka’s talk at the Bristol Buddhist Centre on Tuesday 13 January.
The practice of Buddhism is based upon a spirit of generosity or altruism. Modern capitalism promotes greed and selfishness. Vaddhaka explores this clash of values and discusses what Buddhists can do to promote generosity in an economic society driven by greed.
Does capitalism lead to a decline in community and to the degradation of work? If true, what can we do about this? Vaddhaka engages with these questions in two talks given at the Padmaloka Retreat Centre.
