Buddhist Geography

The point of this book, Cynicism and Magic, is not necessarily to make you into a great scholar, or great meditator for that matter. It is to provide an understanding of Buddhist geography. By providing you with the map that Buddha laid out, and that developed throughout the tradition, you will have a complete gift — a package deal, so to speak — in understanding what Buddhism means, what it teaches, and how it applies to you personally and intellectually. It is important to have some understanding of the geography of Buddhism, and how Buddhism becomes an important part of your life and scholarship.

From Cynicism and Magic: Intelligence and Intuition on the Buddhist Path, page 1.

Join the editors of the book, along with special guests, for an online course presenting themes from the book. The first night, October 4, 5:30 pm MT, is a celebration of the book’s publication, free and open to all. For more information, go to https://www.naropa.edu/academics/extended-campus/
