“Happy heresy my beloved truth seekers.” ~ Aeon Byte

From Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio

A tour to the East to one of Gnosticism’s distant cousins. We dispel many of Zen Buddhism’s misconceptions—at the same understanding its origins, theology and philosophy that are a radical departure from mainstream Buddhism and all other Eastern faiths. We also parallel the similarities and differences between Gnosticism and Zen Buddhism (and traditional Buddhism). Lastly, we reveal steps to gain Gnosis through the practice of Zazen (meditation). In the end, we discover that the figure of Buddha was as radical a dualist and world-hater as Mani himself.

Astral Guest—Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen and Sit Down and Shut Up and Nathaniel Merritt, author of Jehovah Unmasked.
