Hardcore pragmatic dharma

A recent and increasingly popular trend in Buddhism is “pragmatic” or “hardcore” Buddhism as exemplified by the teachings of Daniel Ingram.    Sam guided our exploration of this development by playing excerpts of video interviews with Ingram as well as some short readings from his book “Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha, An Unusually Hardcore Dharma Book”.  

The first excerpt was from:  Buddha at the Gas Pump [  #235] with host Rick Archer.

The second excerpt was from: ,  with host Liam

A third excerpt (that wasn’t played during Sangha) was hosted by Guru Viking: #14. 

Interview #40 is also with Ingram, a “pandemic edition”

Daniel Ingram’s book is available for free, with other stuff, on his website: The second edition of his book is available here:
