To date, the historical Tibeto-Mongolian symbiosis has been analyzed from the perspective of Tibeto-centric or China-centric political histories. In this talk, Dr. Ujeed reexamines the religio-cultural developments of Buddhism and Buddhist identity amongst the Mongols from the Mongol Empire through to the Qing period. As well as revisiting well-known religio-historical works, her main case studies are extracted from newly obtained Mongolian and Tibetan language Buddhist biographies, religious histories, and records of received teachings from the early modern period. Collectively, these case studies will demonstrate how the Mongols engagement with Tibetan Buddhism was fundamental for the dissemination and development of the wider Tibetan Buddhist tradition far beyond the realms on the steppe.

In addition to the in-person format, this event will also be streamed via Zom. Please register for the Zoom webinar here: https://umich.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_CP6CCQhrS-iwuFreoJvQYA
