Speaker Presentation by Harvey Kraft, Spiritual Archeologist and Author of The Buddha from Babylon.
Topic: Explore the Beginning and Purpose of Buddhism
PART 1: Who Was the Real Buddha? Discovering His Lost History and His Call for Harmony and Wisdom
Join us on Wednesday July 23 and 30 at 7 p.m. for presentations by spiritual architect Harvey Kraft, author of the breakthrough new book The Buddha From Babylon: The Lost History and Cosmic Vision of Siddhartha Gautama (SelectBooks NY).
Mr. Kraft, a life-long student of Buddhism and independent researcher of spiritual history, has mined ancient documents, myths, archeology and linguists. He has uncovered evidence that Siddhartha Gautama, who became the Buddha, had spent a period of time in Babylon, the world's largest and most intellectually active place in the 6th C. BCE, and that Cosmic Buddhism reflects those influences.
The first presentation will track his historical findings in an area that stretches from Egypt to India. The second evening will address the Buddha's visions about the scope, nature and essence of Existence.
The event is open to the public and a freewill offering will be accepted.
Location: Unity of Monterey Bay, 601 Madison St., Monterey, at the Fellowship Hall in the basement of the Unity building. The hall entrance is located to the left side of the church on Herrmann Drive.
