Robert A.F. Thurman on Tibet
Explore the history and culture of Tibet, from its ancient past to modern times, with Robert A.F. Thurman, Tibetan scholar, writer and translator, and a good friend of the Dalai Lama. Time Magazine, which chose him as one of its 25 most influential Americans, described him as a "larger than life scholar-activist destined to convey the Dharma, the precious teachings of Siddhartha, from Asia to America." In this three-part series, Thurman tells us, with humor and insight, the stories and legends of the ancient Tibetan kings, heroes, sages, saints, and adepts. We see how the Dharma progressed in Tibet and how a powerful renaissance spirit seized the nation and a life dedicated to evolutionary progress towards buddhahood became the prevalent model for Tibetans. 240 minutes.
Robert A.F. Thurman on Buddhism
"Take refuge in the three jewels, the three precious gems: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. The Buddha means the teacher of enlightenment; the Dharma means the teaching, enlightenment itself. It means reality, nirvana, which is reality--that's the nice thing, that actual reality is the goal. The Sangha is the community through history of beings who are trying to implement the Dharma, who are trying themselves to become buddhas." Robert A.F. Thurman is professor of Indo-Tibetan studies in the Department of Religion at Columbia University and one of the West's foremost scholars of Tibetan Buddhism. He is the translator of The Tibetan Book of the Dead and the author of Inner Revolution and Circling the Sacred Mountain. 220 minutes.
