A public talk with Venerable Thubten Chodron

Tuesday, December 10: 7:30-9:30 pm

The Buddha was once an ordinary sentient being just like us. How did he attain awakening, and what makes him a reliable guide to follow? Ven. Thubten Chodron shares the unique qualities of the Buddha and his teachings from her latest book Following in the Buddha’s Footsteps, the fourth volume of The Library of Wisdom and Compassion, a series she is coauthoring with His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the stages of the Buddhist path.
