Brand Name Dukkha

by Peter Carlson on December 8, 2011

This talk continues an integration of the Four Noble Truths and the cultural stresses that we face in the 21st century.  Quotes from the Suttas were related to modern issues of consumerism and interpersonal alienation, with references to some of the comments of David Loy, a critic of modern culture from a Buddhist perspective.  Participants were invited to comment about what community means in Central Florida relative to the current economic crisis and the pressures of the Christmas season.
