Lama Baasansuren Handsuren
accompanied by Vesna Wallace,
Professor of Religious Studies, UCSB
Saturday, January 12th, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
This Saturday, the United Lodge of Theosophists Los Angeles will host Lama Baasa in the auditorium of Theosophy Hall. Lama Baasa will give a talk, accompanied by Vesna Wallace, Professor of South Asian Religious Studies at the University of California Santa Barbara.
A Spanish translation of the talk will be provided.
Lama Baasa comes from the Gelugpa tradition and has been head of the Erdene Zuu Monastery, Karakorum, Mongolia, for fourteen years. Erdene Zuu has historically had a Sakya lineage and is thought to be the earliest surviving Buddhist monastery in Mongolia.
Lama Baasa has established many programs for the poor people of his area—workshops of skillful living—and has established a program that allows them to make a living by doing crafts. These include programs for the blind, deaf, and mute, who are often kept hidden by their families in this region of Mongolia.
