The capacity crowd at the Barona Arena in Espoo, near Helsinki, warmly received His Holiness’ address and the responses that His Holiness gave to the numerous questions that were put to him.

On being informed that a number of young Finns had been invited to join the audience for the public talk, His Holiness directly addressed them to emphasize their central role in making the 21s Century a century of peace and dialogue in contrast to the 20th Century which His Holiness described as the century of war.

His Holiness’ first program on Saturday was an audience for a group of around 250 Tibetan Buddhists from Kalmykia. The group had traveled from Russia to attend His Holiness’ teachings on “Geshe Langri Thangpa’s Eight Verses of Training the Mind” held in the morning of 20 August as well as the public talk in the afternoon. The morning teachings, attended by over 3,500 people, began with chants by monks from Thailand and Vietnam who recited the heart sutra, and by Finnish monks who follow the Korean Buddhism tradition.

On Friday, His Holiness began the day with a joint audience for board members of the Finnish Tibetan Cultural Association, Songtsen, Tibetans and representatives of other Tibet related groups in Finland.

Following this audience, His Holiness traveled to the Pörssiklubi (The Helsinki Bourse Club) for a ‘Meet the Press’ event with around 70 members of the Finnish media.

After an hour of detailed responses to numerous questions from the press, His Holiness was welcomed to the Bourse Club by the club’s Chairman Mr Mikael Swanljung who led His Holiness upstairs to the member’s dining room to address an assembled audience of over 120 members and guests of the club on the subject of ‘Ethics in Business’. The Pörssiklubi was founded almost 100 years ago and is a key institution in Finnish business and political life.

To the south of Los Angeles is a lively independent suburb named Garden Grove. This small city with a population of around 170,000 is home to the Little Saigon of the Los Angeles region, named for the large number of Vietnamese refugees that immigrated there during the 1970s. Garden Grove has long been known as a conservative bastion with a well-run political machine that kept a tight leash on who ran the city. On 4 November by a margin of just 15 votes, Bao Nguyen beat incumbent mayor Bruce Broadwater to become one of a growing number of Buddhists now engaging in public political service in America.

There was once the son of a Brahmin (the highest "priestly" caste in India) in the court of King Pasenadi of Kosala, whose name was Ahimsaka. He was sent to Taxila for his studies. Ahimsaka was intelligent and obedient to this teacher; therefore he was liked by both the teacher and his wife. This made the other pupils jealous of him. So they went to the teacher and falsely accused Ahimsaka of having an immoral relationship with the teacher’s wife. At first, he did not believe them, but after hearing it a number of
