When Can Buddhism Be Considered Dead and When Living?
by Prof. Dorji Wangchuk, University of Hamburg
“In this talk, I wish to reflect, from an emic perspective, on what would characterize the life and vitality of Buddhism, and when can it be considered dead and when living. I shall do so by exploiting, among other things, the idea of what came to be known as the ‘nine modes of expertise’ (mkhas pa’i tshul dgu). According to one interpretation, these include studying, contemplation, and meditation (thos bsam sgom gsum); exposition, disputation, and composition (’chad rtsod rtsom gsum); and knowledgeability, ethical-ascetical integrity, and goodness (mkhas btsun bzang gsum).”

The Goodman Lectures
A series of online lectures by leading Buddhist studies scholars
The Goodman Lectures are organized in honor of long-time Khyentse Foundation friend and advisor Professor Steven D. Goodman (1945–2020), whose enduring vision to make academic talks available to people beyond the classroom inspired KF and our friends in academia to share their knowledge and insight with a more general audience.
