Wherever in the world Buddhism has been practiced over its 2,500 year history, there has been a dialogue between the essential spiritual aspects of the tradition and elements of the local culture.
We are in a fascinating phase of Buddhist history where, for the first time, there is a meeting of this tradition with modern western culture.
In these online interviews, members of the Triratna Buddhist Order discuss the inspirations and possibilities arising from this encounter.
