SUNDAY, MAY 27 2:00 PM
UBC FREDERIC WOOD THEATRE
Robert Thurman may have extremely famous children (Uma Thurman) but he is a celebrity in his own right. Coined by The New York Times as “the leading American expert on Tibetan Buddhism”, Robert is full of valued insight. He is the Je Tsongkhapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University in New York
and the first American to have been ordained a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He has authored and/or coauthored over 20 books on Buddhist philosophy, practice, art and culture. Thurman is a world-wide speaker who is known for being a charming, engaing and enthusiastic. This Sunday should be nothing short of spectacle! You won’t want to miss this opportunity!
