The talk on Thursday, November 9th at noon focuses on the sectarian polemics in the Kagyü and Sakya traditions of Tibetan Buddhism regarding what can be described as the “inherently virtuous nature of reality.” While Buddhist thinkers agree that on the ultimate level nature is pure, what exactly that ultimate nature is—whether it is neutral or virtuous— is the subjects of debates. Komarovski will discuss how conflicting understandings of the ultimate nature by Buddhist thinkers affect their diverse approaches to virtue. Join us in Ingraham Hall to learn more.
