Burmese-Style Buddhism in North America: Indiana-Jones Orientalism?

Gensan Kris Thomson presents some salient points from Joseph Cheah’s take on Burmese Buddhism’s history and move to North America in his book Race and Religion in American Buddhism: White Supremacy and Immigrant Adaptation.

Gensan’s outline to go with the talk and discussion: Burmese Buddhism and the West

Be sure to look-out/listen for Gensan’s own “cultural rearticulation” with the Indiana Jones analogy!

Note: Beginning around 50 minutes, an update on my great teacher Blanche Hartman and chanting of the Enmei Jukku Kannon Gyo to her well-being. — May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

We hope this talk has been of benefit to you. Your generosity will support us to continue to share the teachings with others .
