“We Can Be Buddhas”
Join us for a TED Talk Discussion Hour, with refreshments and a chance to engage in conversation guided by Nick. The prompt for this week’s conversation will be Bob Thurman’s TED Talk “We Can Be Buddhas.”
It can be hard to expand our circle of compassion beyond the people close to us. Friends and family, yes, but how can we develop the capacity to show compassion to people we disagree with?
Bob Thurman is an American scholar and Tibetan Buddhist monk ordained by the Dalai Lama.
