Treasure Seminar Series

The Treasure Seminar is focused on Tibetan and other treasure traditions within an interdisciplinary perspective, with the aim of coming to a better understanding of their possible origins. As Tibet sits on the crossroads of inter-cultural communication, we think it is important to understand the nature of South and East Asian influences on Tibetan traditions, as well as the extent to which indigenous traditions have been preserved. Our aim is to explore the phenomenon of "treasure" discoveries and revelations from different perspectives and in different cultures, mainly the Euro-Asian sphere and focusing particularly on textual treasures. We also hope to enrich the research on the topic by integrating different methodologies from across fields, such as textual research and anthropological ethnography.

The seminar meetings are supposed to be relaxed and trigger discussions, will be followed by dinners and pubs, and everyone is very welcome to join any time!
