This Wednesday, Tenzing Wangdak, an ethnographic researcher at New York University, will lead a Tibetan storytelling event at the Rubin Museum. It will emphasize the spiritual nature of the stories of elder Tibetans. Following the storytelling event, there will be a museum “treasure map tour,” created by Tom Campbell, who is a former monk in the Vajrayana tradition, a cultural anthropologist, and an attorney.
In the tour, according to the Rubin Museum website:
We will closely look at art that reveals the watershed treasure-teachings of Padmasambhava, who is often referred to as the Second Buddha in Tibet. The teachings include a ritual to empower community, a Tantric visualization of the wrathful, purifying deity Vajrakilaya, and a teaching to cultivate highest insight awareness. Each teaching offers symbols and stories that can help us cut through our own obstacles and cultivate compassion.
For anyone interested in storytelling or Tibetan history, this is an event not to be missed. Tickets for “Stories and Treasure Teachings of Padmasambhava Himalayan Heritage Talk and Tour” can be purchased here.
When: Wednesday, November 7, 6:30–8:00 pm
Where: Rubin Museum of Art, 150 West 17th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan
