Robert A. F. Thurman, a professor of Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University, is best known for his translation of The Tibetan Book of the Dead, as well as for authoring Inner Revolution, Circling the Sacred Mountain, and Essential Tibetan Buddhism. The videos are broken into seventy-minute lectures delivered from the podium of the scholar with wit and humor to match the lofty and complex elements of the Three Jewels of Buddhism: the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha. The lectures are not intended as an introduction to the elements of Buddhism; rather, they are an extended discussion of the three tenets.
