February 28, 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.
