"Being Mindful of Race is a Buddhist Activity" - Alice Reinheimer

 

Never once did the Buddha say that it is important to be mindful of race. How could he? After all, the concept of race as we know it today was invented in the North American British colonies in the 1660’s. That’s over 2000 years after the Buddha’s death. So how is it that being mindful of this thing we call race is at all Buddhist?


A number of Buddhist teachers actively promote being mindful of race, especially as a practice for those of us who identify as white Americans. Join us as we explore how Buddhism does indeed encourage us to be mindful of this thing we call race and how it operates in our lives.
