Thai Buddhism and Social Change: A Conversation with Decha Premrudelert

12:00—1:30 pm
Wednesday, September 3, 2014
Private Dining Room (#129), Vanderbilt Divinity School
Long-time Thai social activist and practitioner of Theravada Buddhism, Decha Premrudelert, will join the Vanderbilt Divinity School community for a lunch hour conversation to share his experiences of incorporating varieties of "social engaged Buddhist" practice into movement-building and social change efforts in Northeast Thailand. Anyone interested in exploring the intersections of religious practice, civic engagement, and alternative education movements will enjoy the opportunity to exchange with Decha.
All are invited to attend. You may brown bag your lunch or purchase a boxed lunch for $5.00 (20 lunches available—4 options: turkey, chicken, roast beef, portabello; while quantities last).
