Ecumenism in Tibet – A Panel Discussion with Ringu Tulku at CU Boulder, 18 Apr ’13

EcumenisminTibet-Poster-bioRingu Tulku Rinpoche will be part of a panel discussion on “Ecumenism in Tibet” at the University of Colorado, Boulder to launch a conference for Tibetan Buddhist translators, “Translating Buddhist Luminaries: A Conference on Ecumenism and Tibetan Translation.” The Thursday evening panel discussion (April 18, 7 pm) is free and open to the public, and will be held in the British Studies Room, 5th Floor of Norlin Library, on the CU-Boulder campus.

Ringu Tulku is an expert on ecumenism in 19th-century Tibet and is the author of the Ri-me Philosophy of Jamgon Kongtrul the Great. The Tibetan term, ri-me, literally means “unbiased” and refers to the ecumenical impulse among a famed circle of Buddhist luminaries in nineteenth-century Tibet who worked tirelessly to collect and compile a wide range of teachings in order to preserve Tibet’s diverse practice traditions and unique tantric heritage.

The public panel is co-sponsored by the Tsadra Foundation and Center for Asian Studies at CU Boulder; for more information, see Ecumenism in Tibet: Public Panel with Ringu Tulku.
