China on the Palouse to Focus on the Three Pillars of Chinese Thought March 26

March 08, 2018

The search for solitude has been at the core of Chinese civilization ever since it began 5,000 years ago. Spending time alone, usually in the mountains, has been an essential part of all three major spiritual traditions in China: Daoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism, and it continues to be so today. China scholar Bill Porter will give a slide presentation and talk about this tradition that has played such an important part in Chinese culture and in the teachings of Laozi, Confucius, and Bodhidharma. His talk is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Monday, March 26, in the Idaho Commons Whitewater Room. The talk is sponsored by the U of I Confucius Institute.
