Después Del Budismo

Repensar el Dharma para un Mundo Secular

by Stephen Batchelor

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/08/2018

 
After twenty-five centuries, Buddhism continues to inspire individuals from diverse spheres of society, including secular and nonreligious. Stephen Batchelor has taken upon himself the task of secularizing Buddha's original teachings, developing a philosophical, ethical, and contemplative vision of Buddhism more compatible with current times. Buddhism is to him an evolving culture of awakening that has been able to survive because of its ability to creatively interact with each society it encounters, reinventing itself in the process. After twenty-five centuries, Buddhism continues to inspire individuals from diverse spheres of society, including secular and nonreligious. Stephen Batchelor has taken upon himself the task of secularizing Buddha's original teachings, developing a philosophical, ethical, and contemplative vision of Buddhism more compatible with current times. Drawing from critical readings of canonical texts, Batchelor characterizes Buddha's teaching as pragmatic rather than dogmatic.

Han pasado veinticinco siglos desde que el Buda inicio sus ensenanzas, y el budismo sigue inspirando a personas de todo el mundo, incluyendo a aquellas que viven en sociedades secularizadas. Pero, que significa adaptar las practicas religiosas a un contexto secular. Stephen Barchelor, un maestro y autor muy reconocido internacionalmente, lleva tiempo articulando una vision filosofica, contemplativa y etica del budismo, adecuada a nuestra epoca. Despues del budismo es la culminacion de cuatro decadas de estudio y practica en las tradiciones tibetana, Zen y Theravada. Realizando una brillante lectura critica de los textos canonicos mas antiguos, Batchelor nos describe la ensenanza de Buda no como una metafisica dogmatica sino como una ensenanza etica y pragmatica. Entiende el budismo como una cultura del despertar en constante evolucion, cuya longevidad responde a su capacidad de reinventarse e interactuar de forma creativa con las sociedades con las que se encuentra.
