Starting at 7 p.m. in the USAO Ballroom, the Venerable Geshe Lobsang Chophel will give a short talk entitled “Tibetan Buddhist approaches to peace and compassion” and then lead a discussion with the audience. He will be joined by fellow monks Dorjee Tsering and Padma Dimdul. Closing out a week of activities with Norman Cultural Connection, Chophel and his fellow monks will travel to USAO for the first of three lectures about resolving conflicts from a Tibetan Buddhist perspective. The following two lectures will take place during the 2017 summer and fall trimesters and will cover Buddhist approaches to violence and reconciliation, respectively.
Event is free and open to the public
