The Buddha's Dream of Liberation {Book Review}
Western Buddhism has already gone through several turnings of its own, and it'll go through more. It started with comparative religion theologians and Asian immigrants. From there, Buddhism slowly diverged into two separate arms: Secular and Traditional. Secular Buddhism first found its voice as the "Beat Zen," of Alan Watts, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg. From there, the mantle was handed to Jack Kornfield and Joseph Goldstein who kicked off the Vipassana Movement.
