Non-Violence Will Rule!

Professor Thurman has a difficult time presenting his world perspective to conventional intellectual or activist networks because he seeks to break the cycle of clinging to outside salvation. The root practice of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism is that we each must do the work of living peace, expressing joy and sharing compassion for all beings every single day of our lives. That's a hard sell when trying to point fingers at oppressors and liberators. When Professor Thurman teaches these ideas, they are presented like a stiff drink with an ironic (often hilarious) American twist. I hope you will enjoy this lecture given in June at the Transcendent Nation Foundation.
