Quick reminder: we will not be having class on April 28 or May 5. We’ll be resuming on May 12 with a special speaker on contemporary issues in Islam.
The handout for Buddhism is below, and my presentation can be seen after the jump. Meanwhile, a couple of links you might be interested in:
- The world’s most famous Buddhist teacher is on Twitter: click here to see the official Twitter account for the 14th Dalai Lama.
- After class, I realized that I made a major omission from my list of famous Buddhists â€“ namely, the most famous athlete in the world, Tiger Woods.
- CBS News did a story about Woods’ Buddhist upbringing and how it is guiding his response to his personal failings
- GetReligion, meanwhile, has written several posts which look at media coverage of Woods’ religious beliefs. For example, here’s one post which takes a look at the bracelet that Woods has begun wearing, and connects Woods with the Dalai Lama.
