Allen : You may be interested in this last event. This was all that was posted on The Buddhist Channel. Possibly they will fix their link later and include the rest of the article.


London, UK -- This week has been bookended with two notable Buddhist events. On Monday the Dalai Lama was presented with his Templeton prize at a ceremony in St Paul's. On Sunday, in a rather more low-key event, Stephen Batchelor and Don Cupitt will be debating with Madeleine Bunting the possibility of religion without supernaturalism at Friends House on Euston

Thanks Bob.



Yes, the name of Stephen Batchelor has been popping up a lot with me lately; it seems I am being drawn to his 'atheist Buddhism'!



Thanks again for the suggestion.




Allen.

Batchelor came to prominence when he wrote Buddhism Without Beliefs. It has been attacked because it challenges the institutionalized practices and many beliefs of Buddhism as an established religion.  Personally I enjoyed the book (It is quite short and available in paperback) and found much wisdom in it.
