Consuming Belief: Han Chinese
Practitioners of Tibetan
Buddhism in the PRC
In the context of a perceived spiritual
crisis in Chinese society, growing numbers of Han Chinese are turning to
Tibetan Buddhism for ethical guidance. Based on an ethnographic study of a
group of affluent, urban Han Chinese who have become followers of Tibetan
Buddhism and patrons of Tibetan monks, this talk will examine the sources of
Tibetan Buddhism's appeal for wealthy Chinese and the range of ways in which
they integrate Buddhist principles and practice into their lives.
Lunch will be served.
