    Buddhism and Atheism | Ajahn Brahmavamso

    Buddhism and Atheism | Ajahn Brahmavamso

    Is Buddhism an atheistic religion? Does it believe in a God? And what do Buddhists worship? Ajahn Brahm takes on this topic, pointing out the consequences of believing in a supernatural being and looking into who created our universe or world. Ajahn goes deeper by talking about meditation experiences (jhanas) and how the mind is chief and more powerful than anything else in the world. (16th April 2010).

Invaluable in its wisdom

I’ve been listening to talks from the BSOWA since 2012. Ajahn Brahm, Nissarano, Brahmali, and others have become fixtures in my life who I always come back to for wisdom to remind me of the truths of life. After growing up in an emotionally and physically abusive family, the monks’ years of talks have genuinely changed my assessment of the problems and trials that life gives us. I can’t thank you all enough for your years of service.

Wonderful

Makes Buddhist teachings and philosophy accessible to those new to it. Good for anyone who wants to understand Buddhism even on a non-religious basis.

Even though

People who practice Buddhism are supposed to let go of worldly pleasures, I’m addicted to listening to these monks and nuns!
