Three leading Buddhist organizations, Buddhist Gem Fellowship, Buddhist Missionary Society Malaysia and Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia, supported by eight other Buddhist organizations, will be organizing the World Buddhist Conference (WBC) from November 3-4, 2012 at the Istana Hotel, Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur.

The theme of the conference is "Transcending Negative Emotions".
The two-day Conference provides particpants a unique opportunity to learn from world renown Buddhist teachers and leading psychologists and psychiatrists about how one can develop true happiness and well-being in our everyday lives. It allows for one to experience the Buddha's teachings as a living philosophy that is contemporary and relevant in this modern world.

Great to see HE Tai Situ Rinpoche traveling and teaching!
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

Sigh... I never thought this would happen here...

From the Vajrayana Buddhist Council of Malaysia Facebook site here
We are upset and shocked that due to political pressure - the video of HHDL's interview will NOT be showed in this conference (as it was promised and publicized in all major newspapers). Any suggestion on our next step? Please share your views here. Thank you.

I recall a near similar recent fiasco in South Korea not too long ago this year ...

Latest update...
Dear all friends,
It is with a heavy heart that the organising committee would like to inform that Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa will not be able to come to Malaysia personally in November 2012. However, the good news is that there will be live telecast of Tai Situpa Rinpoche at most of the events which have been planned. We will update the updated schedule within the next couple of days for your information and registration.
