ASIA PROJECT, GREEN TEA CONVERSATION
ATTAINING BUDDHAHOOD IN THIS VERY BODY: THE INTERPRETATION OF MEDIEVAL SHINGON BUDDHIST CONSECRATION RITUALS
Join in a Green Tea Conversation with Dr. Takahico Kameyama. Dr. Kameyama is a post-doctoral research fellow of IBS/GTU. He earned his Ph.D. degree from Ryukoku University, Japan in 2012. His research interest includes Japanese Esoteric Buddhist schools such as Shingon and Tendai.
Dr. William Short, Dean and Professor of Christian Spirituality at FST will deliver the 2013 Distinguished Faculty Lecture entitled “From Paris to Alcalá: The Franciscan School and the University, 1219-1533.”
The stories of Noah and Jonah share a remarkable number of details, including: water, boats, a divinely-decreed catastrophe, and a prophet's desperate need to escape. These comparisons will lead us to a surprising inverse relationship between the stories, including opposing views on the question: is it really possible for human beings to change?
