007 The Four Streams

Humanism, Stoicism, Buddhism, and Daoism are the four streams of inspiration for Bodhidaoism. In this episode we are looking at the four traditions as four streams, each with their own tributaries feeding them. For example, Humanism has the tributaries of Confucianism and Chavaka. Humanism is the skeptical stream, Stoicism is the rational stream, Buddhism is the mindful stream, and Daoism is the mystical stream.
