mahasangha news buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly fall 2 0 08 90 its fourth annual residential sum- mer session on contemplative cur- riculum development at Smith College in August. The summer session prepares university and college teachers to return to their classrooms with a deeper under- standing of the practice of con- templative teaching and a fully developed course. Resident faculty included Arthur Zajonc (Amherst College), Mirabai Bush (outgoing director of CCMS), and Sister Linda-Susan Beard (Bryn Mawr College).More than 400 people gathered at the College of Santa Fe in May to celebrate the life of lobsang lhalungpa, a Tibetan Buddhist scholar, translator (Life of Milarepa), and major figure in the Tibetan exile community. He died at 82 on April 28 as a result of a hit-and-run car accident. Lha- lungpa translated for the Dalai Lama for over 40 years and rel- ished his small role as a govern- ment official in Martin Scorcese’s film Kundun. Lhalungpa and his wife, Gisela Minke, moved to Santa Fe in 1989. She recalled him describing it as “the place the most like Tibet he’d seen in North America...and [the place where] he’d had the most profound medi- tations.” Lisa Leeman has re- ceived an Advancing Scholarship in the Humanities and Social Sci- ences grant to research and film the feature documentary crazy wisdom: The life & Times of chögyam Trungpa. The plot sum- mary says that through unprece- dented access and exclusive archi- val material, the film will “look at the man and the myths about him, and attempt to set the record straight.” Chögyam Trungpa, a powerful and sometimes contro- versial Tibetan Buddhist teacher who came to North America in 1970, died 20 years ago this year. The film will be produced by Lee- man and directed by Johanna Demetrakas. Both are affiliated with the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California.The first U.S. confer- ence on happiness and its causes will be held November 24 and 25 in San Francisco.

Vic MAnsField, a professor of physics and astronomy with a deep interest in Tibetan Buddhism, died in June after a two-year battle with lymphoma. Mansfield, who taught at Colgate University for 35 years, recently won the Felten French Prize for inspirational teaching and was a favorite among students, particularly for his challenging approach to core cur- riculum subjects at the junction of science and spirituality. The Dalai lama wrote the introduction to Mansfield’s latest book, Tibetan Buddhism and Modern Physics (Templeton Foundation Press), published in March. When the Dalai lama visited Colgate in April, Mansfield handed him a copy during an emotional presentation (above). SUSANKAHN ➤
