Thurman was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Her first name "Uma" (Sanskrit उमा) literally means "splendour, light" and it is also one of the epithets of Hindu female Goddess Parvati, while her second given name "Karuna" (Sanskrit करुणा) means "compassion" or "empathy". Her father, Robert Alexander Farrar Thurman, is a professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies; an academic and writer, he lived as an ordained Buddhist monk for three years. Her mother, Nena von Schlebrügge, a high-fashion model, was born in Mexico City, to German and Scandinavian parents; Nena was discovered in Stockholm, and moved to New York City at the age of 17 to join the Ford Modeling Agency. Thurman received a Buddhist upbringing, and spent altogether around two years in the Indo-Himalayan town of Almora. She grew up mostly in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she went to Amherst Regional Junior High School, then moved to Woodstock, New York. She has three brothers, Ganden (b. 1967), Dechen Karl (b. 1973), and Mipam (b. 1978), and a half-sister named Taya (b. 1961), from her father's previous marriage. Thurman's first cousin, once removed, is Swedish football player Max von Schlebrügge.
She won a Golden Globe Award for the TV movie Hysterical Blindness (2002). Her career was somewhat revitalized when she reunited with director Quentin Tarantino to play the main role in both Kill Bill films (2003/2004) which brought her two additional Golden Globe Award nominations with a BAFTA Award nomination.
