Stephen Schettini talks with Ken McLeod on the question, “Does Buddhism Matter?”
Ken McLeod, creator of Pragmatic Buddhism and a distinctive voice in and beyond Buddhism, was trained principally in the Karma Kagyu school of the Tibetan tradition and is founder of Unfettered Mind.
Ken and I both studied in Europe in the 1970s and have crisscrossed many of the same byways for forty-odd years, but only bumped into each other in 2011 at a Buddhist Teachers Conference in upstate New York. Since then we meet regularly to discuss the impact Buddhism on our lives and teaching, and where modern society is headed.
In this talk Ken begins with the surprising statement that he, “Never thought Buddhism would make my life better.” We talk about inner demons and bliss, about truth about whether Buddhism is unique and especially what would happen to society if its citizens were to see through their projections.
