Tibetan Buddhism Lecture

Tibetan Buddhism Lecturer on Campus
“Stories of the Buddha: Ancient, Medieval, Modern” by Professor Kurtis Schaeffer, University of Virginia (and former UA Religious Studies professor), Tuesday November 8, 7:30 pm, Gorgas 205

Stories of the Buddha’s life are as old as the Buddhist tradition, and continue to be told today. Kurtis Schaeffer will highlight surprising continuities and profound changes in the life stories of the Buddha as they have been told in ancient India, medieval Tibet, and contemporary Europe and North America.

    I do think if I would have attended this I would of been a tad bit uncomfortable

  2. Although I have a strong Christian faith, I would have liked to attend this lecture. It never hurts to be well informed on the beliefs of others. Plus, religion aside, Buddha was an interesting historical character.
