We are in the middle of a very significant year: September 20, 2015 was the beginning of the 40th year of theological education at UTS. I hope that you will join with me this anniversary year by contributing to the Annual Fund and the 40/40 Campaign.

Donors make bequests to make a difference after they are gone. Mary Goodman, a New Haven laundress who bequeathed her life savings (nearly $5,000) to Yale Divinity School to provide scholarships for African Americans, was especially successful in this regard: her bequest supported the school’s first black students, and continues to support students today, nearly 144 years later.

Twenty five Barrytown students celebrated Thanksgiving in a unique way this year-with Tai Chi, meditation, and lectures on Samsara and Karma by a Tibetan Buddhist Monk, Lama Wangdue, who holds the venerable title “Geshe” from the Sera Jay Monastery in India.

The two-credit course on Buddhism began the evening before Thanksgiving and spanned until Sunday afternoon. Student response was positive. One reflected that the course was “one of the best” he had experienced at UTS. Another remarked that the exposure to Buddhism helped her better understand her own religious tradition.

Geshe Lama Wangdue was appointed to the UTS faculty as Lecturer in Buddhism in the Fall 2007. The next Buddhism intensive course with Lama Wangdue is scheduled for the Spring of 2008. Contact the registrar for details.
