Smith College: Life as a Western Buddhist Nun

April 11 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm EDT

Venerble. Thubten Chodron

Part of the Robed Warriors series

Public Talk with Ven. Thubten Chodron

“You’re becoming a what?” said Venerable Thubten Chodron’s family and friends when she announced in 1977 that she was going to become a Buddhist nun. How does a Western woman fit in a religion led by Asian men? How does she relate to Western consumerist culture, when her spiritual values advocate a simple lifestyle? How does she make peace with her family and thrive in her Buddhist practice?

Talk is held in Selye 106.
