Event Details
ONLINE talk with Venerable Dr Juewei
17th November
7pm – 8.30pm

Given the pressing problems facing humanity, now is a good time to review the wisdom of past Buddhist sages to discern insights for living in today’s world.

Venerable Dr Juewei (monastic and teacher in the Humanistic Buddhism tradition) will unpack the Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch. She will examine how it can help us connect with the values of humanity and what it means to be human.

Buddhism does not place the human above or beneath other sentient beings (divine or otherwise), nor does it turn to other-powers for salvation and answer. If we see the progress of civilisation as a pendulum swinging, each time problems seem insurmountable and people look to the supernatural for answers, a Buddhist sage reminds us to have faith in ourselves.

The Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch is invaluable in its insights into this special faith.
