Idea and Importance of Nonsectarian Tibetan Buddhist Forum
The 4th International Nonsectarian Tibetan Buddhist Conference was held recently in Richmond, Northern California. The conference has an online discussion forum where Tibetan Buddhist and Bon experts, Geshes, Lamas, ordinary monks, and lay people including many from Tibet hold regular discussion on variety of topics pertaining to Tibetan culture and religion. The idea of this forum is to enhance better understanding as well as relationship amongst all the major dominations of Tibetan Buddhism including Bon. Table Talk invites Tenzin Wangayl Rinpoche, the current President of the Forum and Sogyan Rinpoche, who is one of the key founding members of the organization to discuss its goals and significance.
