Event Image Vinous Voices: Horace's Ninth Epode
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

In recent years Horace's Epodes have become increasingly topical—the recipient of com­mentaries by Cavarzere, Mankin and Watson. Horace's ninth epode, one of his most famous poems, has as its subject the battle of Actium, one of the most decisive and influential battles of antiquity; yet one has only to glance at these commentaries to see scholars cannot agree on where the poem is set (in the city of Rome or at the battle itself?) or when it is set (before, during or after the battle?). Is the poem a prelude to a drinking party, as Nisbet thinks, or is there a drinking party already in progress, as Fraenkel believed?

In this lecture Tony Woodman will argue the opening of the poem is deliberately ambiguous, challenging readers to work out the dramatic context as they read through the poem. It is gradually revealed that an off-shore drinking party is in progress, and one can account for the very different phases of the naval en­gagement described in the poem if one assumes Horace is not the only speaker.

This event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome. Sponsored by GCAH, CWCTP and the Department of Classics.
Evoking Enlightenment: The Rise of Poetic Language in Early Tantric Ritual
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Please join us for a lecture by Jacob Dalton, Khyentse Foundation Distinguished University Professor in Tibetan Buddhism at UC Berkeley, for a lecture on "Evoking Enlightenment: The Rise of Poetic Language in Early Tantric Ritual." Co-hosted by the Tibet Himalaya Initiative and the CU Libraries, the lecture will take place at 5:30pm on Monday, April 17th. We will start with refreshments at 5pm and have the opportunity to go on a 10-minute tour to a Library Exhibit on Tantric Ritual.

Evoking Enlightenment:
The Rise of Poetic Language in Early Tantric Ritual

In the seventh and eighth centuries, a new genre of Buddhist canonical literature began to emerge in India.  The esoteric counterparts to the sutras, the new tantras purported to record the teachings of not just the historical Buddha Śākyamuni but an array of cosmic buddhas dwelling in alternative worlds.  The tantras introduced an array of new practices into Buddhist practice, from complex new rituals involving elaborate mandalas, mantras, and mudrās, to an emphasis on secrecy and initiation rites, and more.  In this talk, Dalton will explore another element that arose at this time, one that has so far received little scholarly attention.  With the advent of the tantras came an unprecedented interest in the imagination, aesthetic experience, and poetic expression.  At key points in tantric ritual practice, poetic language began to be used to evoke a taste of awakening.  The shift is seen most clearly in early tantric ritual manuals, the documents of lived Buddhist practice, examples of which will be drawn from the Dunhuang archive and analyzed for the kinds of literary moves they make.

Jacob Dalton teaches Tibetan Buddhism and holds a joint appointment in South and Southeast Asian Studies and East Asian Languages and Cultures. He worked for three years (2002-05) as a researcher with the International Dunhuang Project at the British Library and later taught at Yale University (2005-2008) before moving to Berkeley. His research focus on tantric ritual, Nyingma religious history, and the Dunhuang manuscripts. His books include The Taming of the Demons: Violence and Liberation in Tibetan Buddhism (Yale University Press, 2011), The Gathering of Intentions: A History of a Tibetan Tantra (Columbia University Press, 2016).
