The Mandala Principle: Tibetan Sacred Art as Transformative Environment

The originally Sanskrit word maṇḍala literally means "vital essence environment." Its underlying idea is that our vital essence—call it mind, heart, soul, life energy— is really a field, infinitely interrelating with countless other fields of life in space and time. Join us for a talk with Robert Thurman to learn about the mandala traditions of India and Tibet.
Robert Thurman is a recognized worldwide authority on mind science and spirituality, Asian history, philosophy, Tibetan Buddhism, and H. H. the Dalai Lama. He is also an advocate of the relevance of classical Indian and Tibetan Buddhist sciences, arts, and practices in our daily lives as well as a leading voice for the value of reason, wisdom, peace and compassion. He was named one of Time magazine's 25 most influential Americans and has been profiled by The New York Times and People Magazine.
