Mandalas: Sacred Circles of Healing and Enlightenment
Dan Cozort is an associate professor of religion at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where he teaches about the religions of India and Native America and lives with his wife and two children. A native of North Dakota, he earned degrees from Brown University and the University of Virginia. His collaborations with Tibetan lamas, including two lengthy stays in south Indian monasteries, have resulted in two books on Buddhist tantra, a catalogue for an exhibition on tantric art, a video documentary on sand mandalas, and a book on the Prasangika-Madhyamika school of Buddhist philosophy. Before coming to Dickinson, he taught at the University of Virginia, James Madison University, and Bates College. He was one of the founders of the South India Term Abroad (SITA) study program, a collaborative effort of several small liberal arts colleges, and served as its director in Madurai, south India, in 1992-93. He is President of the Central Pennsylvania Buddhist Fellowship, advises the Dickinson chapter of Students for a Free Tibet, and is involved in a variety of capacities with a new Unitarian Universalist congregation in Carlisle.
