Ven. Thubten Chodron

Ven. Thubten Chodron is a well-known author and teacher. Born in the USA, she is well-known for her humorous and down to earth approach to practicing Buddhism. She has published many books on Buddhist philosophy and meditation, including four volumes (so far) in The Library of Wisdom and Compassion, co-authored with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, with whom she has studied for nearly forty years.  She founded Sravasti Abbey in Washington state (US) where Western ordained sangha are trained in the Buddha’s teachings. Her vision includes doing prayers and practices in English and using technology to spread the Dharma. She brings her core values of gender equality, social engagement, and care for the environment to the Abbey community.

This evening talk will be based on the second volume of The Library of Wisdom and Compassion. She will give clear and practical teachings on key topics at the heart of Buddhist practice, such as what determines what Buddhism is and what is not, and how to live a meaningful life.
