    From Eastern Tibet to West Milwaukee: Interreligious Dialogue in the Shambhala Tradition.

    Chogyam Trungpa, the founder of Shambhala, was heir to a tradition of Buddhist non-sectarianism which sought to preserve his own as well as other schools of Tibetan Buddhism.  The Shambhala Buddhism he introduced in the West shows the same commitment to other religions and spiritual traditions. A discussion of what Shambhala has to offer those interested in interreligious dialogue today.

     

    Steven Shippee, Ph.D. is a senior Shambhala teacher, Catholic theologian, and Professor of Systematic Studies at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology. He has published articles on the dialogue between Chogyam Trungpa and Thomas Merton, and on the Buddhist-Catholic dialogue on contemplative life.
