Buddhism in the 21st Century
Public talk with Venerable Thubten Chodron
Friday October 4, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Indian prince who became Shakyamuni Buddha left his palace life to become a fully awakened Buddha more than 2,600 years ago. Since then, faithful disciples have spread his teachings throughout the world. What exactly did the Buddha teach? Are those teachings still relevant today? What can modern students learn from this ancient wisdom? What can we adapt, and what must stay unchanged? Join American nun Thubten Chodron as she shares from more than 40 years of lived experience as a first-generation Western Buddhist monastic about her journey into Buddhism and how the Buddha’s teachings relate to our modern lives.
