Vaddhaka is on a tour of Triratna Buddhist centres in the UK and Ireland, promoting his book about Buddhism and capitalism, The Buddha on Wall Street. See below for further dates.

Before his Manchester talk, Clear Vision filmed an interview with him. What is a practical Buddhist response to capitalism? How might an economics motivated by generosity look?

Hi Munisha, Could you add the West London Buddhist Centre to the list, please.

It’s June 5th. I think Vaddhaka hasn’t had time to update his website yet on this.
