Listen in pop-out player

Joan's guest is Stephen Batchelor, one of the world's foremost authorities on Buddhism. As a young man the hippy trail led him to India, where he became a monk in the Tibetan school of Buddhism. He later left the order ten years later, because he was unable to subscribe to beliefs such as the doctrine of reincarnation. He now articulates a secular Buddhism which he believes offers the key to successful living.
