Tibetan nun to speak at NIC on ‘The Qualities of a Rich Life'



Venerable Thubten Chonyi, an American nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, will speak on “The Qualities of a Rich Life” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, in the Edminster Student Union Building Lake Coeur d’Alene Room on North Idaho College’s main campus.

The presentation will investigate what it means to live a rich life regardless of income. How much is enough? Couldn’t we all use a little bit more of everything – money, love, praise, or happiness? What makes us rich? What are the symptoms of spiritual poverty?

Ven. Chonyi was ordained a Buddhist nun in 2008 at Sravasti Abbey in Newport, Wash., and received a bhikshuni ordination at Fo Guang Shan in Taiwan in 2011. She teaches Buddhism throughout the Northwest and occasionally abroad. Ven. Chonyi co-founded the Coeur d’Alene Dharma Friends.

The event is sponsored by NIC Diversity Events and Coeur d’Alene Dharma Friends.

The presentation is free and open to the public, but donations for the abbey are welcome. Attendees are asked to arrive a few minutes early.

Information: Laura Templeman-Paxson at (208) 660-5477.
