What is our world? Buddhist cosmology (1)

Ajahn Punnadhammo (Birken Forest, 4/19/18); Dhr. Seven, Pat Macpherson, Wisdom Quarterly

Buddhist Cosmology (1): Space, Time, and Being
The Buddhist Cosmos (Ajahn)
This is Part 1 in a continuing series on ancient Buddhist cosmology, the shape and inhabitants of our environment on the surface of the earth -- our planet or island Jambudvipa (the "Rose apple Land") and around it. It is a dialogue between two long-time Western monks from the Theravada Thai forest tradition, Ajahn Punnadhammo and interviewer Ajahn Sona. Ven Sona is from Birken Forest Monastery in British Columbia, Canada, which is affiliated with Pacific Monastery in Washington, USA. For a free download on Buddhist cosmology, go to
