This talk explores the life story of Buddha Śākyamuni in literature and art as imagined by the acclaimed seventeenth-century Buddhist master Tāranātha. The figure of Śākyamuni formed a central identifying feature of Tāranātha’s monastic seat in western Tibet, and the talk draws upon the extraordinary collection of literary and visual materials associated with the site.
The event will be in English.
