Ajahn Brahm and the invigoration of Buddhism in Asia

Postby Anagarika » Fri Sep 28, 2012 8:20 pm

With so much discussion about Buddhism fading in Asia, and Buddhism surviving and spreading in the West, albeit with some corruptions in the Dhamma/Dharma, it was interesting to find today this vide of Ven. Ajahn Brahm in Indonesia: http://youtu.be/j84m-BXX60E

I watch his Sutta lessons that are on youtube from time to time, and it's clear he's a strong Dhamma scholar, who has successfully integrated the teachings with a very friendly, open, and even sometimes humorous means of teaching.

It will be interesting to see whether a British Bhikkhu from Australia can be a big part of reigniting a passion and dedication for the Way in Asia.
