Public Session 1 • Room 204, 2nd Floor • 2:30 PM, June 2, 2017

For westerners looking to study at the highest level in the Tibetan Buddhist World, there are significant barriers. Would you enroll in a Tibetan monastic college in India or Nepal? Meet four westerners who did just that, several of whom still continue their rigorous decade of study today. This session will be a public discussion with Robert Miller, who was director of education at a monastery in India, and four western students from Tibetan monastic colleges: Katrin Querl (Drikung Kagyu College, Dehra Dun), Simon Houlton (Institute of Buddhist Dialectics, Dharamsala), Matt Weiss (Sera Je Monastic University, Bylakuppe), and Gerd Klintschar (Rangjung Yeshe Institute, Kathmandu).

What does genuine transmission of Tibetan Buddhism in the west look like? How can we be active participants in this process?

Two western teachers and two translators will discuss all these issues and more in this wonderful meeting of minds.
