Nuns slated to speak at The Mac about Buddhism in the Northwest


On Saturday, Ven. Thubten Chodron and Ven. Thubten Chonyi of Sravasti Abbey will speak at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture about Buddhism and about their abbey, located in Newport.

At the day-long event, they’ll discuss the history of Sravasti Abbey – the first Tibetan Buddhist monastery for Western nuns and monks in the U.S – and the impact its had on the Pacific Northwest.

Chodron, abbess of Sravasti and co-author of “The Foundation of Buddhist Practice” ( co-written with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama) will speak at 10:30 a.m. Then, after lunch, at 1:30 p.m., Chodron will lead a meditation workshop.

The event is free and will be held in the Museum’s Eric A. Johnston Auditorium, 2316 W. First Avenue.
