Video series synopsis:  Towards an Integral Model of Buddhism by Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi (approx. 53 min. total) This lecture was given to the board members and volunteers of Buddhist Global Relief during a Board Retreat. It is an early attempt by Ven. Bodhi to develop a model for understanding and practicing Buddhism suitable for the post-modern stage of mind's evolution. A Domain Matika that illustrates the structure of realms and their interconnectness can be downloaded as a PDF. The lecture was given on April 10th, 2010 at Bodhi Monastery in Lafayette, NJ


I will post the videos in the response section below, where I can post multiple videos.  I'm doing it here rather than in the video section of the forum because it's easier this way to keep all the parts together.

10 or so years ago Bhikkhu Bodhi visited the Thai Wat I used to associate with (he was friends with an American Monk residing there). I chauffered him around and got to chat with him. He was familiar with Wilber's work and had some criticisms of it (who doesn't) that I cannot remember. He suffers from chronic migraines, you can see the strain on his face in these videos. He is like the Theravada lineage holder...he knows the sutras like few others. A friend manages He pays for the web hosting and other fees himself and says all the other volunteers do the same. From the sites front page 90% of the cash goes to relief so if you have a few extra bucks and are feeling generous you can be assured your donation will be well spent.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
