Kahepaikne #18 15.05.2018

Tonight’s entertainment is brought to you by a particularly international episode of Kahepaikne, as our guest this time, Valentina, comes from sunny Italy, but is currently doing her second PhD on Tibetan culture. Having lived in both China and Tibet, she spoke with us about the peculiarities of life in those parts of the world, especially in regards to the high altitudes of Tibet. Additionally, we spoke, among a vast amount of other topics, about the Western depictions of Tibet and in general Western interpretations of Buddhism, the very particular funeral practice of sky burial, the role of religion in Tibetan society, and of course what the Tibetan diet is like. Naturally, we also touched upon the topic of the Dalai Lama, how he is found after every reincarnation and whether he is vegetarian or not.
