Buddhism & Culture

Main Factor that Led to the Decline of Buddhism in India

Khenpo Tsultrim, resident teacher at Drikhung Kagyue Buddhist Center in Maryland, explains that the main cause of Buddhism’s decline in India was due to Muslim invaders who came from central Asia to India and destroyed famous learning centers such as Nalanda and Vikramasila universities. But in recent times Buddhism has seen a revival in India due to the influence of Dharmapala, Dr. Abedkhar and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
