Toward a Fourth Turning – Evolution of Buddhism


Ken Wilber’s reflections on the developmental unfolding of Buddhism set within an AQAL (Integral Theory) Lens.


“Buddhism has, of all the major religions, always had a very self-reflexive understanding of itself as growing, evolving, unfolding. Nowhere is this better seen than in Buddhism’s own notion of “Three (or Four) Turnings,” the idea that Buddhadharma itself (Buddhist Truth) has gone through three or four major turnings or evolutionary unfoldings, each adding to (but including) the previous turning.”
