The Dangers of "Universal"


With Head Teacher Ejo McMullen

Listen to this talk.
At the core of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition is the teaching of universal awakening.  While this teaching can be incredibly inspiring, it is also easily misunderstood.  Much of human conflict throughout history has been marked by clashing visions of what is universal and the meaning of universal itself.  In this talk, Ejo will explore the "universal" in Buddhist teachings discussing pitfalls in how we understand them, and some ways to keep an open and broad heart of practice alive in ourselves and in the world.
