Janet Gyatso: Being with Animals: Buddhist Resources
January 27, 2022
3–4:30 PM ET Online
The Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Studies, University of Toronto
This talk will explore what we can see when we pay close attention to animals, and what doing this can teach us about the value of the animal world. It will draw upon Buddhist notions of compassion and theories around meditation and other forms of self-cultivation. It will also touch on best practices with pets and other animals in our world today.
This event is co-sponsored by the Religion in the Public Sphere initiative of the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto. The series is organized by Rory Lindsay, Assistant Professor, and Frances Garrett, Associate Professor of Buddhist Studies in the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto.
This is the third event in the Ho Centre's speaker series Buddhism and Posthumanism: Questioning the Place of Humans in Multispecies Environments.
