This is the first in our series of conversations leading up to the Dalai Lama's visit to Louisville in May.
I spoke with Tibetan Buddhist teacher Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel about connecting between meditation and compassion. We also discuss the evolving process of translation of Buddhist texts, how Namgyel got interested in Buddhism, and what she'll discuss when she speaks in Louisville for the Festival of Faiths conference beginning May 14. She's also the author of, "The Power of an Open Question."
Listen to the interview below.
