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.

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.
