An Evening with Coleman Barks and Martin Shaw
A Community of the Heart: Join us for a special evening with poet Coleman Barks and storyteller Martin Shaw to explore the playfulness and intensity of the heart and its many secrets.  Focusing particularly on Rumi, whose poetry so powerfully opens the heart, the evening will feature poetry, myth, jokes, and lively conversation about the place where language and feeling combine to make a caravanserai of longing. Two travelers tell of their dreams and invite you to join them. Bring your dancing shoes to hurl at the moon.

Coleman Barks is the author of numerous Rumi translations, including The Essential Rumi, and has been a student of Sufism since 1977. His work with Rumi was the subject of Bill Moyers's Language of Life series on PBS, and he is a featured poet and translator in Moyers's poetry special, Fooling with Words.

Stanford CREEES to Feature a Lecture on Buddhism in Post-Soviet Russia

Venerable Telo Tulku Rinpoche:
"Buddhism Post-Soviet Union"

Buddhism has been part of Russian civilization for at least the last 400 years, even though many people may not be aware that Buddhism was ever part of life in Russia.  Then came the Bolshevik Revolution, and the rule of communism was enforced. We can scarcely imagine what happened then, when all religious traditions in Soviet Union were destroyed by the iron fist of Joseph Stalin. But what happened after the sudden fall of the iron curtain? Telo Tulku Rinpoche will give a detailed account of how Buddhism was reintroduced, revived and restored in the post–Soviet-Union period.

Wednesday, February 27, 2013. 6:00 PM.
Approximate duration of 1.50 hour(s).

Levinthal Hall, Stanford Humanities Center
