Buddhism without “Buddhism”

I’ve been a fan of TED lectures for years. Yesterday I came across this one by Thandie Newton. I found it quite moving, and at the end, I was struck by the idea that she may have just presented a Buddhist approach to life without once mentioning the Buddha or Buddhism. Which, or course, makes her presentation extremely Buddhist.

One thought on “Buddhism without “Buddhism”

  1. I adore TED as well – and I find that *many* of the TED speakers give “Buddhist” talks, probably without ever realizing that is exactly what they did. The dharma is all around; and people who are grounded and connected and open just live it, even if they don’t “know” it. đŸ™‚
