“A New Spiritual Dimension After the Crisis: The Message of Tibetan Buddhism”

An interview with public participation coordinated by journalist Marcello Foa, co-founder of the European Observatory of Journalism.

Robert Thurman is the Jey Tsong Khapa Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University in New York City. He studied at Phillips Exeter Academy as well as Harvard, and then went on to study Buddhism and Tibet as a personal pupil of the Dalai Lama for nearly 30 years. Robert A. F. Thurman is the father of Uma Thurman and Dechen Thurman and he is also a former Tibetan Buddhist monk. In 1987, Mr. Thurman and Richard Gere founded New York City's Tibet House, a nonprofit institution devoted to preserving the living culture of Tibet. Robert Thurman has written extensively and lectured all over the world. He can be seen and heard in the documentary film Free Tibet (1998) which was produced by Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys.

About Lu Jong

Lu Jong is a system of physical movements developed centuries ago by Tibetan monks living in remote, cold, and extremely inaccessible places in the Himalayan region. The movements help to open the channels leading to the meridians, thus unblocking the natural energies of the body. When practiced regularly Lu Jong becomes a healthy yet simple method to maintain physical well-being. It also makes our body positively responsive to the challenges of daily stress and seasonal changes.

The last words Buddha told his disciples before dying were: Sammasati, Remember that you are a Buddha. Buddha-nature begins in treating our body as a temple and Lu Jong has long been practiced as an effective method to balance inner harmony with outer conditions.

About Loten Dahortsang

Loten Dahortsang was born in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. In 1979 he immigrated to Nepal and began studying Buddhism in the monastery headed by Lama Yeshe. Since 1982 he has been living in the monastic community of the Tibet Institute at Rikon, on the outskirts of Zürich, where he has been educated by his uncle, Geshe Jampa Lodro, as well as by Geshe Ugyen Tseten and Geshe Gedün Sangpo. He has continued his studies in Tibetan Buddhism since 2002 at the monastic university of Sera in South India. He conducts both meditation and teaching classes and retreats in Buddhist centres throughout Europe, and was first assistant director of the documentary The Saltmen of Tibet, a New York Times Film Critics' Pick
