Tibetan Buddhism Slowly Innovates

New Books Network 2015

The second episode of the IMPERFECT BUDDHA PODCAST has been released from its cage. This episode is split into two parts. 2.1 explores experimentation within Tibetan Buddhism in the West and discusses the work of Reggie Ray, Chogyam Trunpa's American student who is doing good work and opening Tantric Buddhism to the LGBT community. We look at the Wales based Tantric Buddhists known as the Aro-Ter, whose monks and nuns are married couples and wear long hair. We also explore Unfettered Mind and Ken McLeod's project of westernising Mahayana and Tantric Buddhism. Enjoy!
