Secular western Dharma encourages the removal of the ‘ism’ from Buddhism to create the potential for a fourth reformation period. It promotes a return to the simple and practical communication of a journey that points towards the awakening experience of clarity and the actualization process that follows, that is free from institutionalized religious dogma, blind belief and superstitions.
This book sets out the principles and practices of that journey that pays homage to the ancient past but embraces fully the present and the future for the benefit of all beings.
May all being be well
May all beings be contented
May all being realize peace of mind
