Myth Reading Group
Thursday 16 March
12.00-1.30pm in Room NTC.2.06
We are very pleased to announce that Fliss Rich will continue our discussion of mythical journeys with a session on reincarnation in Tibetan Buddhist writing, art, and practice
In the session, we will discuss how mythscape and deathscape intertwine in Tibetan Buddhist writing, art, and practice when addressing the issue of journey in reincarnation.
Essential reading: Please read Chapters 17 & 18 from Rinpoche Sogyal’s The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying (London: Random House, 1995): ‘Intrinsic Radiance‘, pp. 274-286, and ‘The Bardo of Becoming‘, pp. 287-298. An explanation of the Wheel of Life imagery can be found in Lonely Planet Tibet by B. Mayhew et al. (2002), pp.304-305.
