On Buddhism: Shila, Samadhi and Prajna
Duration: 58 minutes
Buddhism is fond of using numerical categories as devices of memorization. The whole path can be conceived of in the Three Fold Training, probably the simplest of these divisions. Shinzen speaks on the concepts of Shila (precepts), the misunderstanding of Samadhi (concentration) and Prajña (wisdom). Delving back into pre-history and leaping forward into scientific, mathematical and psychological concepts, Shinzen demonstrates the complexities of these simple categories.
