The HCBSS Faculty Co-Director Paul Harrison will give the Goodman Lecture for the Khyentse Foundation on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at 4:00 pm UTC (8 am PDT) via Zoom.
“What Can We Learn From the Teaching of Vimalakīrti?”
This talk will take as its point of departure a recently published English rendition of one of the most celebrated of all Mahāyāna sūtras, The Teaching of Vimalakīrti.* After briefly describing some aspects of the translation work and the textual sources on which it was based, the talk will move on to a discussion of the content of the sūtra. What is it actually about? How should we understand its various moves, narrative, literary and doctrinal? And what does Vimalakīrti still have to teach us?
Please register via Zoom.
