Report from the 2011 Buddhist Teachers Cinf.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

They did not invite a single Sakyapa, Asian or Western.

So called “sentient beings” are merely delusions self-appearing from the dhātu of luminosity.

Yeah, but I'm not sure anyone who didn't attend missed anything anyway.

This is perhaps a better representation of what transpired, for at least some of the conference, from one participant's view. A mixed bag, I think.....?

The absence of almost all of the invited notable Asian teachers long active in the West at the conference was somewhat disappointing, and may auger a new era and generation of Western Buddhism.


Never the twain shall stay together - one wonders why - too much Dharma lite by converts??
