A Hare-marked Moon: Book Tour
November 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
About this event
- In-person event
In the spring of 2004, David Lascelles invited a group of monks from Bhutan to build a stupa in the gardens of Harewood House in Yorkshire. It was a step into the unknown for the Bhutanese. They didn’t speak any English, had never travelled outside their own culture, had never flown in an airplane or seen the ocean.
A Hare-Marked Moon tells the story behind the extraordinary meeting of cultures that resulted in the Harewood Stupa, interspersed with accounts of David’s travels in the Himalayas which delve into the rich and turbulent history of the region, and the beliefs that have shaped it.
Jamyang London Buddhist Centre and Kagyu Samye Dzong London are delighted to celebrate the publication of this book.
- 30-minute documentary ‘The Story of an English Stupa’ by Judi Alston, recounting the making of the stupa
- Short reading from David of his book followed by a Q&A
- Social gathering in the Yard Cafe!
