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.

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??
Every time you recite Amita Buddha’s name, a ray of light shines through empty space. If you recite very sincerely, then this light fills up the universe, so that the energy of all worlds will be auspicious and harmonious.
