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

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.
