Fri June 2: Evening talk, 7pm-9pm
Sat June 3: Daylong Workshop, 10am-12pm, 1:30pm-4pm
If you could talk to the President about how to run this country, what would you say? Second century Indian Buddhist philosopher Nagarjuna had the opportunity to teach a king, and his advice on how to govern with wisdom and compassion is recorded in his beautiful poem, A Precious Garland of Advice for a King, an inspiring early example of Buddhist advocacy on social policies.
As we move into increasingly turbulent times, Venerable Thubten Chodron draws from Nagarjuna's text to offer practical advice for all of us on how to put our values into action, to bring benefit to ourselves and others now and in the long-term. Holding a space for reflection and discussion over the weekend, she will teach from her latest book, Practical Ethics and Profound Emptiness: A Commentary on Nagarjuna's Precious Garland by Tibetan scholar Khensur Jampa Tegchok.
Join her for a public talk and daylong workshop to explore how to take your spiritual practice off the cushion, to create peace from within and without in a chaotic world.
