Brandon Dotson delivers the 2018 Khyentse Lecture at UC Berkeley

February 2018

Approximately 70 people attended the 2018 Khyentse Lecture by Prof. Brandon Dotson (Georgetown University). In his lecture, entitled "Buddhism and Divination in Tibet," Dotson introduced an early form of Tibetan dice divination involving intimate exchanges with gods and with goddesses (sman), and considered how Buddhism variously transformed, absorbed, and transmitted such divination practices up to the present day.

Preceding Dotson’s talk, UC Berkeley student Joshua Dultz received the Khyentse Foundation’s (undergraduate) Award for Excellence in Buddhist Studies from the foundation’s Executive Director Cangioli Che.
