Robert Thurman at TED

August 8, 2007

Davee points us to this video of Robert Thurman speaking at the TED conference last year, giving one of his characteristically pithy talks on the Buddhist view. Here, he invokes technology metaphors (appropriately enough) to talk about interconnectedness, and invokes the Beatles and Rolling Stones to make a few points about ego-clinging ("I, Me, Mine") and suffering ("Satisfaction"). It's well worth a watch if you've got twelve minutes to spare.
