Meditation and the Moral Cosmology of Buddhism

That's a title idea for a talk I will give at The University of Montana next spring. I want to discuss how meditation is filtering into modern society from the East (particularly from Buddhism, of course). But I also do want to cover some of the theoretical or cosmological significance of meditation and ethics from a Buddhist POV.

The notion will be that Meditation 'atunes' one to the cosmos, or the Dharma. It is a sort of 'turning away from' the mundane way of seeing life - a way dominated by greed, aversion, and delusion.


More to come...
