London Launch of 'Wisdom in Exile - Buddhism and Modern Times'

  • Dechen London 106 Chepstow Road London W2 5QS UK (map)

Lama Jampa's new book 'Wisdom in Exile' explores the space that exists for Buddhism in contemporary culture, a space created by the failure of our dominant systems of thought. With its emphasis on bringing together intelligence and contemplative experience, Buddhism offers an authentic way to liberation in these modern times.

However, as Lama Jampa Thaye argues, it is crucial that the temptation to assimilate Buddhism to the ruling ideologies of our age be resisted. Thus 'Wisdom in Exile' delineates the distinctive features of Buddhist thought and practice as well as presenting the training in meditation and compassion that is the heart of the Buddhist path.

Wisdom in Exile proposes a fresh approach to Buddhism, one in which the fundamental tenets of the Buddha’s teachings are rediscovered.” (His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin, head of the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism)

Copies of the book will be on sale at the event.

Lama Jampa Thaye will give an introduction to the book, followed by a Q&A.

Schedule: 18.45 for a 19:00 start, followed by a reception.
