Abstract

Witchcraft and wizardry, dark arts and light, the Philosopher's Stone and the Wizard Army's might -- Far from being elements of fantasy, these things are very real for Buddhists who live in the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar. In this talk, Dr Patton will share his stories of how he tracked down powerful wizards, spent years studying Buddhist magical spells, and immersed himself in a world that seems to come straight from the pages of a Harry Potter novel.
