Dear Dharma Drink Friends,
Intrigued by the culture, arts, history, and sacred traditions of Himalayan Asia? Tashi Chodron, the organizer of Rubin Museum of Art's Himalayan Heritage meetup group has invited us to join them for another special event.
From Rubin: “The world-renowned Himalayan poet Yuyutsu Sharma will discuss the art of writing and share his recent work based on the exhibition The Second Buddha: Master of Time.
Using images and the exploits of Padmasambhava, who traveled to Tibet in the 8th century and established Vajrayana Buddhism, Sharma will discuss the art of writing through an exploration of Himalayan masters, and read new works from his collection, The Second Buddha Walk: I Walk Like an Old Man.
Sharma’s poetry explores concepts of time in Asian mythology and writing, including the treasure troves, or terma, that Padmasambhava left across time and space for his disciples. Discussing the guru-disciple relationships that are central to Hindu and Buddhist traditions, he evokes the motif of time and space to express the role of deities in shaping the future of humanity.
The talk will be followed by a book signing of his work.
Yuyutsu will be introduced by David B. Austell, PhD, associate provost and director of the International Students and Scholars Office at Columbia University.”
To help the museum expenses, the Rubin Museum will charge a fee of $19 (plus handling fees).
