A Survey on Secular Buddhism

This week I will be working on a feature article on Secular Buddhism for Buddhistdoor.net and could use your help. While I know a good number of Secular Buddhists, I’d like to hear from as many corners of the (online) Buddhist world as possible. I’m asking a few questions below about Secular Buddhism. You are welcome to answer whether you are a Secular Buddhist or not; and in fact I would love to hear from many non-“Secular” Buddhists.

I use the scare-quotes here and there as I think the definition of the term is still in development – and, as such, one of the questions is about your definition of Secular Buddhism.

Yes, yes, you can feel free to quote Stephen Batchelor in the survey. But the more of your own thought, ideas, practices, and history that you can offer, the better.

Thank you! And please spread the word by sharing this post or the survey alone on social media.
