Goodman Lecture Series, What Can We Learn From the Teaching of Vimalakīrti?
Khyentse Foundation is pleased to welcome Professor Paul Harrison, Stanford University

This talk will take as its point of departure a recently published English rendition of one of the most celebrated of all Mahāyāna sūtras, The Teaching of Vimalakīrti.* After briefly describing some aspects of the translation work and the textual sources on which it was based, the talk will move on to a discussion of the content of the sūtra. What is it actually about? How should we understand its various moves, narrative, literary and doctrinal? And what does Vimalakīrti still have to teach us?
