Last night a couple of us from the West Wight Sangha made our regular trip over to Newport to join the Soto Zen group for their Thursday evening meeting. As usual I took along a recorded Dharma talk for us all to listen to, in this case it was “The Ultimate Question” by Ajahn Brahmali. On previous evenings we had spent some time discussing Stephen Batchelor’s latest book “After Buddhism” so it was a joy to find that when I was looking for a photo of Ajahn Brahmali I also came across a videoed debate between Stephen Batchelor and Ajahn Brahmali on the relevance of the early Buddhist texts for the modern world at an event hosted by Melbourne Insight Meditation Group.
