The life and legacy of founder of Tibetology Alexander Csoma de Koros were topics of discussion during a lecture in Jenkins and Nanovic Halls on Monday. Professor of theology emeritus and fellow at the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian studies Robert Gimello hosted the event, titled “A Protestant Scholar or a Buddhist Bodhisattva: Csoma’s Life and Works.”Professor Imre Hamar, a Professor of Chinese Studies at Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest, Hungary, said Csoma de Koros has great significance to the people of Hungary, who see him as a prominent national hero. Hamar said a debate exists over Csoma de Koros’s involvement with Buddhism, particularly over whether Csoma de Koros was a true follower of Tibetan Buddhism or a Protestant scholar.“For most Hungarians, Csoma is not so much a scholar who founded a new discipline, but a national hero who dedicated his life to find the true homeland of the Hungarian people,” Hamar said. “His main motivation was to find the origins of the Hungarian people.”The Hungarian people were originally nomads from Asia, and Csoma de Koros sought to understand the origins of both the Hungarian language and people, Hamar said. To do this, he travelled east to Asia, and eventually Tibet. Csoma de Koros was born in 1784 in a small village near the border of the Ottoman Empire, Hamar said. He was born to a Szekler family whose ethnicity held the ancient responsibility for defending Hungary’s borders against invaders. Instead of becoming a border guard, as was his obligation, he earned a scholarship to a Protestant school, Hamar said.During his time at college, Csoma de Koros became increasingly appreciative of the Hungarian people and language, and his desire to understand the roots of the Hungarian people grew. After spending some time studying Slavic languages in Europe, Csoma de Koros travelled from Hungary, through the Middle East, Persia and India before finally arriving in Tibet. It was at the command of a British officer, William Moorcroft, that Csoma de Koros began his studies in Tibetology specifically, Hamar said. Csoma de Koros compiled a Tibetan alphabet and book of grammar, “Alphabetum Tibetanum.” The book was intended to aid missionaries in their work in Tibet, Hamar said, although the main motif of the book was the struggle against many Protestant teachings.Hamar said Csoma de Koros was one of the first Europeans to bring Tibetan Buddhist teachings back to Europe, and he worked in three different monasteries in Ladakh, India. The Alexander books, which he wrote, were compilations of questions he had for his Lama — or teacher — in Ladakh, and his Lama’s answers. In 1834, he published the first Tibetan-English Dictionary. These were some of the first texts that were direct interactions between Eastern and Western thinking, Hamar said.“The Liu Institute was very glad to have an introduction by a leading expert into an important figure in the history of European knowledge of Asia, who is not well known in the western world except in Hungary, so we have the opportunity because of Professor Hamar’s lecture to learn more about this heroic figure,” Gimello said.

sensibilities London was going to grind to a standstill paralyzed by security fears In the days before Sochi started two years ago social media crackled with criticism and images mocking Russian workmanship An aerial view shows the Christ the Redeemer statue with the Maracana stadium where the opening cermony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games will be held Reuters In Brazil as Rio de Janeiro gears up for the opening ceremony on Friday a slew of problems have indeed made many question the success of the Games – from a recession to cost overruns to forced evictions to pernicious pollution to the collapse of a new bike path that killed two people An outbreak of the Zika virus a corruption investigation that jailed dozens of politicians and rich executives and a political crisis prompting the president’s impeachment have also battered Brazil’s reputation and self-confidence But with as many as 500000 foreign visitors descending upon Rio just days before show time a familiar sense of anticipation and festivity are leading many to come to another habitual realization: Things might actually go okay "Despite all the talk and all the media I think Brazil is going to pull off a great Olympics" said Farhad Panahi a visitor from Toronto enjoying the contrast from on high between verdant mountains and playful beaches during a tour of Rio’s iconic Christ statue "It’s going to be fun and the city is going to have a good time" True plenty could still go wrong even forgetting the financial hangover expected after Brazil spent about 40 billion reais ($123 billion) to host the Games just as it reels from its worst economic downturn since the Great Depression Traffic jams and other logistical problems could make for long waits and missed events Quick fixes and last-minute construction could still cause problems at venues and Olympic housing And the threat of terrorism at a time of growing attacks by militants continues to hang over the event Even concerns over Zika infections which have waned dramatically during Brazil’s winter because lower temperatures slow reproduction of the mosquito that spreads the virus could intensify if a sustained heat wave caused the bugs to rebound But Brazil aware of its possible shortcomings is relying on massive manpower to help things go smoothly – a trick it has successfully used during previous big events including the 2014 World Cup soccer tournament and giant annual Carnival and New Year’s celebrations More than 85000 police soldiers and other security personnel will be on hand – over twice the force deployed during the London Olympics in 2012 More than 50000 volunteers will be in place across the city to help wayward visitors ‘A WAY TO REJOICE’ What’s more Brazil has a history of being able to put spectacle first no matter its other travails "You think slaves had reason to party" asks Haroldo Costa a historian of Carnival and other popular festivals in Brazil "Yet it was their song and dance that led to our popular festivals Brazil no matter the circumstances finds a way to rejoice" After traffic jams early this week Mayor Eduardo Paes declared that Thursday when the Olympic torch ends its three-month journey across Brazil would be yet another official holiday – the fourth now decreed to reduce traffic during the busiest Olympic days Public holidays helped grease the wheels during the World Cup too Never mind the complaints of industry small business owners and others who lose revenue and still pay overheads with every holiday For those here to enjoy themselves it’s all the more reason to have a good time "This is like a dream" said Miguel Vizcainho a 23-year-old law student from Argentina He and three friends holders of Olympic volleyball and table-tennis tickets filled an inflatable boat with ice vodka bottles and juice on Copacabana beach The sun beat down from a blue sky as tourists and locals took in its warmth and the pre-Olympic buzz now palpable around town It’s not that visitors are unaware of the problems Vizcainho said reports of rising crime gave him and his friends pause before they decided to come anyway Others said they had to brush off fears about Zika despite the fact that infection rates now have fallen to a fraction of what they were at the height of Brazil’s scare earlier this year And even those well aware of the nightmare scenario at such

THE partner of assisted suicide campaigner Marie Fleming broke down in tears on the Late Late Show last night as he read out a letter she had written to the people of Ireland.Tom Curran spoke to Ryan Tubridy in an emotional interview about their failure to have assisted suicide recognised by Irish law. Marie, from Lifford here in County Donegal, is in the final stages of multiple sclerosis and was “very disappointed” after the Supreme Court rejected her appeal against the High Court’s refusal to grant orders that would allow her to be lawfully helped to end her life at a time of her choice.Mr Curran however said he was still prepared to help his terminally ill partner to end her life. He also revealed that Marie, a prolific writer, would publish her memoirs.Tubridy had visited Marie at their home earlier this week.But neither he nor the audience was prepared as Tom Curran read a letter she had written especially for the RTE1 programme.Weeping at times, Mr Curran read Marie’s letter.It read: “Thank you for listening to what I have to say. This is what was missing from the court.“While I feel let down by the judgement it is more upsetting that I feel that I wasn’t listened to. It seems the State does not want me to die but all the time shifts away at my quality of time one cutback after another; the latest being the mobility scheme and the carbon tax increasing heating and transport costs.“Shame on Enda Kenny for what he is doing to people like me. If the people who made the decisions won’t listen to me I would ask them to come and live with my life for just one day, even one hour, and tell me how enthusiastic they would be about living.“It seems they will not give me permission to die but they will not help me to live either.“On a positive note I want to say how grateful I am to Tom, my family and all my carers for what they do for me. They do all the things I wish I was able to do for myself like showering, dressing, feeding and even scratching my nose when it itches.“I tolerate a lot and I don’t ask much. All I ask is to make my decision about death and to be given that help that I need to carry out my wishes. Through no fault of my own I cannot carry out my wishes myself. I am not asking to find someone to help me; I have that person already.“All I ask is that I carry out my wishes without getting him into trouble. Is that too much to ask?”Mr Curran then broke down as the studio audience burst into a round of applause.LATE LATE SHOW HEARTACHE: PARTNER OF MARIE FLEMING READS HER LETTER TO THE NATION was last modified: May 4th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LATE LATE SHOW HEARTACHE: PARTNER OF MARIE FLEMING READS HER LETTER TO THE NATION
