This course surveys the development of Buddhism in Tibet, from the eighth century to the present. It begins with an introduction to those doctrines and practices of Indian Buddhism that would come to hold an important place in the Tibetan tradition and goes on to examine the process of transmission of Buddhism from India to Tibet. The course surveys the rise of the major sects of Tibetan Buddhism, noting both continuities with Indian Buddhism as well as uniquely Tibetan developments, such as institution of reincarnate lamas (including the Dalai Lamas). In the twentieth century, the course examines the Tibetan confrontation with colonialism and Chinese invasion of 1950, and concludes with a consideration of the current popularity of Tibetan Buddhism. This course is designed for undergraduates with no background in Buddhist Studies but will also be suitable for students who have taken Buddhist Studies 220 (Introduction to Asian Religions) and Buddhist Studies 230 (Introduction to Buddhism).
