Vishvapani looks back to the Buddha’s day in today’s FBA Dharmabyte – from a talk introducing his book titled Gautama Buddha: The Life and Teachings of the Awakened One.

In this segment, “The Buddha in Relation to His Society” he looks at how the Buddha likely engaged with the political and social atmosphere of the times. Did he have a concern with the larger sphere of social life, and does the approach we take as Buddhists in the modern era need to be different?

From the talk titled “The Buddha and Society” given at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre, February 2011.
