Buddhadharma : Spring 2010
buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly spring 2 0 10 90 art in the rich traditional style, while others play with the old ways—giving thangkas, for instance, an unexpected, contemporary flavor. Still other Tibet- ans who feel frustrated by expectations that they create traditional Tibetan art have branched out entirely from their roots. Tibet House strives to support all of these types of artists. Regarding Tibet House itself, there are changes that Robert Thurman would like to see. He’d like the work they’ve been doing made permanent. “Of course,” he says, “we realize everything is impermanent—that’s what the Bud- dha taught. But by permanent we mean we want Tibet House to be an endowed institution that will always represent Tibetan culture in America.” In an effort to create an income base, Tibet House has founded Menla Moun- tain Retreat in the Catskills. The idea is that this center, with its spa-like atmo- sphere, will help disseminate Tibetan healing arts and sciences, and that it will be Tibetan doctors, massage therapists, and healers who will work there. Robert Thurman’s other hopes for the future include a network of Tibet Houses. The original Tibet House is based in Delhi—and now there are others in Mexico City, Barcelona, and Frankfurt. But these Tibet Houses have little connection to each other. In fact, the Tibet House in Delhi took twenty years to recognize the one in New York. “They were worried there would be Tibet Houses everywhere and that they wouldn’t be authentic—that they’d have restaurants or antique shops,” explains Thurman. “They finally realized we were behaving in the same sensible way they did.” He adds that he hopes to one day open an additional American Tibet House on the West Coast. “There’s no Tibetan embassy in the United States because it’s not allowed to exist,” says Thurman. “But Tibetans can have a cultural embassy and, in a way, that’s a representation of the people— not the government, but the people. “That’s my inspiration,” he concludes, “not turning my back on the existence of the Tibetans.” ➤ Ligmincha Institute at Serenity Ridge, Nelson County, VA firstname.lastname@example.org / 434.263.6304 / www.ligmincha.org / www.ligminchastore.org To subscribe to our free monthly e-newsletter, visit VoiceOfClearLight.org WISDOM TEACHINGS FROM THE BÖN BUDDHIST TRADITION OF TIBET With Geshé Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche Awakening the Self, Discovering Joy Self-Realization Through the Three Doors Of Body, Speech, and Mind June 27 – July 17, 2010 Author of The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep; TIbetan Sound Healing; Healing With Form, Energy and Light; and Wonders of the Natural Mind REGISTER FOR ONE, TWO OR ALL THREE WEEKS AT WWW.LIGMINCHA.ORG.
