Sun@BGF – Why Buddhism is True by Benny Liow

Date: 8th March 2020, Sunday
Time: 9.00am to 11.30am
Title: Why Buddhism is True?
Venue: BGF Ara Damansara
Facilitator: Bro Benny Liow

Synopsis

In a book entitled Why Buddhism is True, Robert Wright leads readers on a journey through psychology, philosophy, and a great many silent retreats to show how and why meditation can serve as the foundation for a spiritual life in a secular age. Combining evolutionary psychology with cutting-edge neuroscience to defend the radical claims at the heart of Buddhist philosophy, it will persuade you not just that Buddhism is true—which is to say, a way out of our delusion—but that it can ultimately save us from ourselves, as individuals.
