Welcome to Dharma PhD!

In this episode we talk about John Peacocks' talk, "Buddhism Before the Theravada, Part 2".

We highlight Peacocks' discussion of ethics in Mindfulness and Secular Buddhism. We discuss some definitions of ethics (05:51), we talk about why Shannon became dis-enchanted with pop-mindfulness (35:24), and we talk about how different translations of the precepts can affect how one approaches practice and daily life (53:38)
