Buddhist "Liberation Theology"


 The core aspiration and actualization of Buddhist practice is absolute
  freedom. Freedom in Buddhism does not depend on external
 circumstances as it is in all circumstances so that we may notice and
 act upon the truth that we are
 free within ourselves
 Renown Buddhist philosopher and educator
 Daisaku Ikeda states “Freedom doesn’t mean the absence of all
 restrictions. It means possessing unshakable conviction in the face of
 any obstacle.” 

  Black people throughout the Diaspora have manifested this conviction,
 knowing ourselves to be in and of freedom regardless of the restrictions
 placed on us.
 This interactive dialogue with Dr. Kamilah Majied will highlight the profound
   relevance of Buddhism to Black Liberation.
