Ways of knowing the body in Buddhist Tantra and Tibetan medicine

Janet Gyatso of Harvard University, will discuss the body in Buddhist Tantra and Tibetan medicine. Traditional Tibetan medicine sometimes made unusual efforts to separate itself from religious ways of knowing. This lecture will explore how the body became the focus of some of the most interesting theoretical reflection, from the dawn of Tibetan Buddhism into the time of the height of the central Tibetan government's powers in the 17th century.

This event will be held on Thursday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m. in Hale 270.
