The Just King: The Tibetan Buddhist Classic on Leading an Ethical Life
By Jamgön Mipham, Translated by José Ignacio Cabezón
When: June 4, 6pm
Where: Shambhala Publications event space and book store
4720 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO 80301
The Buddhist luminary Jamgön Mipham wrote a letter on leadership to the king of Dergé, whose small kingdom straddled China and Tibet during a particularly turbulent period. This work stresses compassion, impartiality, self-control, and virtue as essential for long-lasting success—whether as a leader or an individual trying to live a meaningful life. Both present-day leaders and those they lead will find this classic work, finally available in English, profoundly illuminating on political, societal, and personal levels.
Join us for some refreshments, snacks, and a discussion with Professor José Cabezón on ethical leadership according to the great Tibetan Mipham. This Shambhala Publications event follows the Tsadra Translation and Transmission conference at CU Boulder, May 31 to June 3rd.
