When: Wed., Sept. 14, 5:30 p.m. 2011

Buddhism has not always trafficked merely in stillness and enlightenment -- ancient documents found at a "library cave" in Dunhuang describe the popularization in Tibet of violent themes from tantric Buddhism. Cal professor Jacob Dalton writes of this ninth- and tenth-century spread as well as the subsequent evolution of Tibetan Buddhist culture in The Taming of the Demons: Violence and Liberation in Tibetan Buddhism, and appears at University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) on Wednesday, Sept. 14. 5:30 p.m., free. 510-548-0585 or UniversityPressBooks.com
