Read-only newsletter of the Advayavada Buddhism Information Center.
In secular, non-dual and life-affirming Advayavada Buddhism, the Path expounded by the Buddha as the correct existential attitude and way of life is understood as an ongoing reflexion at the level of our personal lives of wondrous overall existence becoming over time. What we experience as good, right or beneficial, indeed as progress, is identified as that which takes place in the same direction that existence as a whole advances of its own accord.
The teaching of the Buddha is seen as a Way of Reconciliation with wondrous all-encompassing existence just right as it is, i.e. as it truly is beyond our commonly limited and biased personal experience of it - the purpose of Advayavada Buddhism is i.o.w. to help us become a true part of the whole. It is further reminiscent of Zen, panentheism and Spinoza.
