Buddhist Perspectives is a weekly forum for discussing Buddhist ideas and how they relate to both personal practice and daily life.
Each week has a different topic from within the Buddhist tradition on which the discussion and meditations of that day are based. The topics stand alone as well as building on one another week to week so feel free to join us at any point.
