with Dr. Joerg Tuske, Salisbury University Philosophy Department
Thursday, April 14
Holloway Hall, Great Hall, 7 p.m.
At the heart of Buddhist teaching is the idea that the lives most of us lead are based on a false perception of reality. At the heart of the true perception of reality lies the notion that our lives exist as a series of connected moments. If we begin to think like that, then our outlook on life would be dramatically changed and we would be liberated from many sources of discontent. Buddhist practice then can be understood as an exercise in gaining true understanding of ourselves and the world. Tuske, SU Philosophy Department, addresses these key theoretical concepts of Buddhism and connects them to Buddhist practices, such as the creation of a sand mandala.
