Dharma for the Future
Public talk with Venerable Thubten Chodron
Thursday, October 3
7:00 – 8:30 pm
Something significant has been quietly happening in the background: for decades, Venerable Thubten Chodron has been compiling and coauthoring a multi-volume series, The Library of Wisdom and Compassion, presenting the Dalai Lama’s comprehensive explanation of the Buddhist path in English. Designed for a 21st century western audience, it brings in teachings from both the Sanskrit and Pali traditions.
In this talk, Venerable Chodron will take us through the genesis of this extraordinary series involving close collaboration with His Holiness; his vision for a presentation of the Buddha’s teachings that doesn’t presume faith in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, and what His Holiness means when he talks about being a “21st century Buddhist.”
