Why you should go. The evening begins with a tour of the exhibition The Second Buddha: Master of Time with curator Elena Pakhoutova. Then Ann Tashi Slater will share her personal experience of illness as bardo and how wisdom from her Tibetan family helped her survive. Ann will read from her essay “Traveling in Bardo,” originally published in AGNI Magazine; at the end of the night, each ticket-holder will receive a signed copy of the essay.
