Author/Translator Bill Porter 3 events: “The Chinese Quest for Solitude"


Bill "Red Pine" Porter

We are excited to announce that BodhiMind Center and Springs Mountain Sangha are hosting 3 events by author and translator Bill Porter. He is well known for his translations of Chinese and Sanskrit texts, which he translates under the name “Red Pine.” After dropping out of graduate school at Columbia University, Porter moved to a Buddhist monastery in Taiwan and lived with the monks and nuns for 4 years, then worked at English-language radio stations in Taiwan and Hong Kong. His translations include Chinese classical texts, poetry, and Buddhist sutras, such as the Taoteching, the Heart Sutra, and Collected Songs of Cold Mountain. He currently lives in Port Townsend, Washington.

Public Slide Talk: “The Chinese Quest for Solitude.”

Thurs., Jan. 31

6:00 PM

US Air Force Academy, Arnold Hall Banquet Room.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
