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.

A yellow-colored Buddhist temple adorned with flags and golden dragons on its pointed roofs in a quiet town outside Tokyo presents a stark contrast to the typically somber-looking Buddhist places of worship usually found in rural Japan. But the steady stream of out-of-town weekend visitors and their nationality also set it apart, for the temple was built by and serves members of the large Vietnamese community in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

Dalai Lama says he could be reincarnated in India, but Beijing says rebirth must follow Chinese rules, The Dalai Lama has warned there could be two reincarnations of Tibetan Buddhism's highest spiritual leader following his death, and that a candidate chosen by communist China was not to be trusted. The comment has prompted Beijing to say the reincarnation "must comply with Chinese laws and regulations". The 14th Dalai Lama, who fled Tibet for India 60 years ago to the day last Sunday disguised as a soldier, said he expected his reincarnated being to be discovered in India this time around.

In the Saha World, death means grieves but in Buddhism, death can be a joy (Nirvana Is Eternal Peace), is it and contrary difficult to understand? That’s why Buddhism appears, that is to deal with this contrary. That is to radically remove the roots of birth and death cycle. If there is still birth and death, there is still suffering. No birth no death means happiness or bliss, it is simply so. In the Great Nirvana Sutra, the Buddha declares:“All formations are impermanent. They have birth and death. Birth and death ends, then comes Nir
