Event Description:
Until the time of the Chinese invasion in the 1950s, Tibet had maintained one of the richest cultural and religious traditions in the world. Now, with many of its citizens living in exile, Tibetans have been striving to maintain abroad the same traditions that were native to their homeland. This course will examine many of those traditions and offer the participant a unique opportunity to participate in them under the guidance of an extraordinary teacher: a Tibetan Buddhist monk who has received the highest degree awarded by an Indian institution in Buddhist studies and who has passed examinations administered by His Holiness the Dalai Lama: Ven. Geshe Thupten Dorjee. Participants will not only learn about the traditions of Tibetan Non-Violent philosophy from an acknowledged authority, but they will also have an opportunity to participate in many of the activities that are central to the culture.
Instructor: Ven. Geshe Thupten Dorjee, Ordained Tibetan Buddhist Monk
