COEUR d'ALENE — An American nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition will visit North Idaho College in early April to share her wisdom about respect.

Venerable Thubten Chodron will present “The Power of Respect: To get it, you must give it” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in the Edminster Student Union Building's Lake Coeur d’Alene Room on the North Idaho College main campus.

The presentation will explore how we want respect, but we can be stingy with it. Who deserves our respect? How do we make them earn it? Can we respect others simply for being human? Ven. Chodron will give guidance on what it is, how we can develop it for ourselves and its global impact when we learn to respect others.

Ven. Chodron has practiced the Buddha’s teachings for more than 35 years. A student of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, she has published numerous books and is the founder and abbess of Sravasti Abbey, a Buddhist monastery near Newport, Wash. She teaches internationally and is well-known for her practical and humorous advice for bringing the Buddha’s wisdom into our daily lives.

The event is sponsored by the NIC Diversity Steering Committee and Coeur d’Alene Dharma Friends.

The presentation is being offered at no charge, but donations for the abbey are welcome. Attendees are asked to arrive a few minutes early.

For more information, contact Laura Templeman-Paxson at (208) 769-7888.
