Wisdom Is Bliss Sacred Stream Book Talk with Bob Thurman
October 23-1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Join author and preeminent Buddhist scholar, Robert Thurman, for this talk on his latest book, Wisdom is Bliss. A long time Buddhist teacher, he makes the path of understanding Buddhism accessible and fun. In his book, he addresses the ideas of Buddhist philosophy and science and explains that Buddhism is actually realism. He demonstrates the ways that Buddha was a critical thinker and educator and offers the modern seeker a new way of engaging with Buddhist thought. As with any Robert Thurman talk, anything goes, and we’ll follow his discourse to some interesting places and there will be time for Q&A with Bob at the end. Funds for this talk go to Tibet House and Computers for Kids.
The Foundation of the Sacred Stream is a non-profit organization and school for consciousness studies dedicated to bringing the wisdom of ancient spiritual and healing traditions into the awareness of contemporary society. It was created on the basic principle that there is a common source of wisdom that underlies all authentic spiritual, cultural and artistic traditions that informs and enlivens them. And while each tradition may take a different form, like plants along a riverbank, each is sustained by the same source. Each workshop we create, each artist or guest teacher we host, and each resource we post on this website is offered to you with the intention of illuminating another way to deepen your own connection to this source, attain a broader perspective, and receive inspiration from it.
