Event Description

In the second part of the 2017 Ableson Religious Reconciliation Lecture, Venerable Geshe Lobsang Chophel, a Tibetan Buddhist monk, will return to campus to discuss the Buddhist approach to peace and compassion in the modern world. During the day, Chophel and his fellow monks will craft a mandala, a sand painting filled with sacred iconography, that will be swept away at the end of the event. The painstaking craftsmanship and its erasure symbolize the impermanence of all things, one of the major tenets of Buddhism.
