A talk by Glenn Mullin

Join us for a fascinating event on the Sacred Sites of Atisha and Guru Rinpoche, where Glenn Mullin will draw upon his wealth of experience during this illustrated talk, at SOAS University.
Glenn will be drawing up his wealth of knowledge, having visited the sites of some of earliest Buddhist masters, particualry those who were responsible to bring Buddhism to Tibet itself. He will be sharing his fascinating insight through his journeys across the world on Buddhist pilgrimage, and sharing his invaluable knowledge on the subject.
Glenn Mullin is a Tibetologist, Buddhist writer, translator of classical Tibetan literature, and teacher of Tantric Buddhist meditation. He divides his time between writing, teaching, meditating, and leading tour groups to the power places of Nepal and Tibet.
Atisha was a Buddhist religious leader and master. He was one of the major figures in the spread of 11th-century Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism in Asia, and inspired Buddhist thought from Tibet to Sumatra. Recognised as one of the greatest figures of classical Buddhism, Atisha was the founder of the Kadam School and a key figure in the establishment of Tibetan Buddhism.
Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, was an 8th-century Indian Buddhist master, who helped in the construction of the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet at Samye, at the behest of Trisong Detsen.

Doors open 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
