with Rebecca McAllister

February 9th

    Room: First Floor Shrineroom

         At the time of the Buddha, the caste system in India was well-established.  Siddartha Guatama asserted that it was actions (thoughts and deeds) that created karma and their results, not birth into particular family. The Buddha taught to abolish discrimination and slavery 2600 years ago.

         Caste: the Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson explores how caste systems continue throughout history and geography and its persistence in contemporary America.
