Event description

Description

How does the Buddhist doctrine of non-attachment work in the modern world? Penn Professor and Buddhist monk Justin McDaniel (Religious Studies, Penn) will describe the growth of a new leisure culture all across the Buddhist world, in Nepal, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. Focusing on the rise of tourist attractions, memorial gardens and monuments, museums and cultural centers, and even amusement parks, McDaniel will show how these sites of leisure are altering the place of the individual within contemporary Buddhist culture.

ASL Interpretation will be provided. If you have any accessibility questions or concerns, please email us.
