Dr. Jules Levinson

An Urgent Cause: Saving Tibetan Language & Culture. Dr. Jules Levinson.

Following the Communist Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959, Tibetan Buddhism and culture was scattered to the four winds. Now, 50 years later, the last Tibetan-born Buddhist teachers are dying. The translation of a religious and artistic tradition from one culture to another generally takes 100s of years. Dr. Jules Levinson, a leading Tibetan Buddhist translator, talks about ‘Light of Berotsana,’ a leading translation group that’s trying to preserve a culture…with time running out.
