The World of Tibetan Buddhism:

an introduction to Buddhist thought

ABOUT DAVID:  David Klemm, Ph.D., is professor emeritus of religious studies at the University of Iowa, where he taught modern religious thought (philosophical theology and hermeneutics) for nearly thirty years.  As an undergraduate, he majored in religion, with special emphasis on Asian religions, especially Buddhism. From 1970-73, he studied in Vermont with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, from whom he learned to meditate.  Throughout his career, he has continued his interest in Buddhism and his practice of meditation.

The World of Tibetan Buddhism 
Short Course #1
Over the next two years I will teach successively the two volumes of The World of Tibetan Buddhism by Reginald A. Ray. Together, these two books present an outstanding introduction to the subject. Any student who works through these two books should emerge with a solid foundation of knowledge on the basis of which she or he should be able to pursue advanced studies in Tantric Buddhism. The course as a whole will be divided into four mini-courses.

This fall we will read volume one, which is titled Indestructible Truth: The Living Spirituality of Tibetan Buddhism. It is a general introduction to Tibetan Buddhism conceived as “a way of experiencing the world.”  Please order the book from Prairie Lights or online.    ~David
