How Buddhism Began by Richard F. GombrichThis book takes a fresh look at the earliest Buddhist texts and offers various suggestions how the teachings in them had developed.
Two themes predominate; firstly, it argues that we cannot understand the Buddha unless we understand that he was debating with other religious teachers, notably Brahmins. For example, he denied the existence of a soul; but what exactly was he denying? Another chapter suggests that the canonical story of the Buddhas encounter with a brigand who wore a garland of his victims fingers probably reflects an encounter with a form of ecstatic religion. The other main theme concerns metaphor, allegory and literalism.
By taking the words of the texts literally-despite the Buddhas warning not to-successive generations of his disciples created distinctions and developed doctrines far beyond his original intention. .One chapter shows how this led to a scholastic categorisation of meditation. Failure to understand a basic metaphor also gave rise to the later argument between the Mahayana and the older tradition. Perhaps most important of all, a combination of literalism with ignorance of the Buddhas allusions to Brahmanism led Buddhists to forget that the Buddha had preached that love, like Christian charity, could itself be directly salvific.

On Saturday, I arrived at to get checked in and settled. They were all very knowledgeable and amazing teachers. I felt lucky to have these trainers at our course. The methodology and movement lectures were divided between the two days. The trainers alternated giving the lectures, so it was nice to hear from different people. Each of the trainers did a great job of explaining their topics and they made sure to highlight key information by repeating it or writing it on the whiteboard.
