Buddhism: The New Enemy
NYU's Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program & Institute

Pope Benedict 16th (previously Cardinal Ratzinger) predicted that Buddhism would replace Marxism as the Catholic Church’s main enemy. At the same time, it is growing at a rapid clip around the world. World renowned Tibetan Buddhist scholar and Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University Dr. Robert Thurman discusses issues of spirituality and Buddhism in the context of a new conservative era in America.

A Buddhist monk ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Dr. Robert Thurman received his PhD from Harvard and is regarded as a leading authority on religion and spirituality, Asian history, philosophy and Tibetan Buddhism. Named one of Time magazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Dr. Thurman co-founded Tibet House US and has written several books, including Inner Revolution: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Real Happiness (Riverhead, 1999) and The Jewel Tree of Tibet (Free Press, 2005).

7pm at the Workshop, booksigning, $5 – 10 suggested donation, proceeds support Tibet House and the Workshop. Please RSVP at 212.494.0061.

Cosponsored by NYU’s Asian/Pacific/American Studies Program & Institute.
