(June 2017) Maitripa College Dean of Education Namdrol Adams recently returned from the second Translation & Transmission Conference. Tsadra Foundation, in consultation with all the partners, sponsors, conference steering committee members, and speakers from the 2014 Translation & Transmission Conference, organized a second conference in the Translation & Transmission Series, which took place May 31st to June 3rd, 2017 in Boulder, Colorado.
The stated purpose of this conference series is to provide an international forum for sustained dialogue and the sharing of ideas and experiences, as well as for collective reflection on the larger cultural and societal dimensions of the transmission of Tibetan Buddhism to the contemporary sphere. This conference was organized not as a showcase for any single project or institution but as an opportunity for all to gather in an open and collegial spirit.
Maitripa College was one of the conference sponsors and many of our friends and past visiting faculty were speakers. Namdrol returned with new ideas and avenues for continued dialogue and expansion of Maitripa College’s evolving role in this field in the United States.
