Join Robert Thurman–the preeminent scholar and interpreter of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy for the modern world–for a discussion of his new book Wisdom is Bliss: Four Friendly Fun Facts That Can Change Your Life.

Wisdom is Bliss is a joyful exploration into the nature of reality through Buddha’s threefold curriculum of super-education. Wisdom is Bliss is an invitation to travel the same road as the Buddha. Deeply felt and bracingly direct, it doesn’t teach about the teaching–it is the teaching. Get ready to get real, and have fun along the way, as you chart a path to reliable, lasting happiness.

“Robert Thurman is a living treasure, one of today’s most provocative spiritual thinkers.” Daniel Goleman

Robert Thurman became a Tibetan monk at age 24–the first American to be ordained by the Dalai Lama. Acclaimed translator of The Tibetan Book of the Dead and author of Inner Revolution, Robert Thurman is a Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies in the department of religion at Columbia University and is the director of the American Institute of Buddhist Studies. He is co-founder of Tibet House U.S., and is one of the most visible and respected Buddhist scholars and thinkers in the world.
