Robert Thurman – Wisdom Is Bliss
Aired Wednesday, August 3, 2021 at 5:00 PM PST / 8:00 PM EST
The eighteenth-century English Poet, Thomas Gray, wrote, “Where ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise.” This is an adaptation of the old proverb, “What you don’t know can’t hurt you.” My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Robert Thurman, says that when it comes to the teachings of The Buddha, Wisdom Is Bliss. Robert Thurman, the preeminent scholar, and interpreter of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy for the modern world, leads us on a joyful exploration into the nature of reality through Buddha’s threefold curriculum of “super-education.”
Robert Thurman was Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University as well as Co-Founder and President of Tibet House US/Menla, in service of His Holiness, The Dalai Lama and the people of Tibet. A close friend of the Dalai Lama’s for more than 50 years, he is a leading worldwide lecturer on Tibetan Buddhism, passionate activist for the plight of the Tibetan people, skilled translator of Buddhist texts, and inspiring writer of popular Buddhist books. His website is https://bobthurman.com/ and he joins me this week to share his latest book, Wisdom Is Bliss: Four Friendly Fun Facts That Can Change Your Life.
