115. Brad Warner // Zen Buddhism, Meditation, Pop Spirituality & the Punk Rock Mentality
Brad Warner is the author of six books, including the critically acclaimed Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies and the Truth About Reality. This book put Brad on the map in the Buddhist community because of its no-nonsense, plainspoken - and maybe even outspoken - approach to zen, meditation and the nature of individual reality.
In fact, Hardcore Zen actually begins with these words: “Nothing is sacred. Doubt - in everything - is absolutely essential. Everything, no matter how great, how fundamental, how beautiful or important it is, must be questioned.”
So you know that yours truly - what, with my plainspoken mantra recited at the end of each episode - you know that this is right up my anti-dogmatic, anti-authoritative alley.
