David Shapiro will speak about and sign his new book, Gesar of Ling: A Bardic Tale from the Snow Land of Tibet, on Wednesday, August 7th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
King Gesar was not an ordinary human being but a manifestation of the enlightened activity of all the buddhas, brought forth by the strength of their compassion at a time of despair in the land of Tibet. In this reflective and sometimes humorous retelling of Gesar of Ling, David Shapiro shares the epic tale of Gesar's life and his eventual ascendancy to become a heroic legend and leader of Tibet. It is filled with the folk wisdom of Tibet and the guidance of Buddhism, relayed through proverbs, prose, and verse.
