Approaching the Buddhist Path
Public talk with Venerable Thubten Chodron
Saturday October 5, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Classical presentations of the Buddhist path were written for Buddhist audiences, assuming the reader already has faith in the Buddha and believes in rebirth and karma. But His Holiness the Dalai Lama understands modern, Western students need a different approach. American nun Thubten Chodron shares from Approaching the Buddhist Path, the first book in a multi-volume series she is coauthoring with the Dalai Lama on the steps to awakening. It offers a framework for practicing the Buddha’s teachings in modern times, unveiling a path of wisdom and compassion that leads to personal fulfillment and a meaningful life.
