Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions

Abbess teaches.

Part of Double-up Dharma! Incredible teachers. Two sessions each. Profound Buddhist wisdom.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has observed that at times he has had a greater amount of exchange and dialogue with non-Buddhist faith leaders and communities than with members of other Buddhist traditions. He also notes his belief that all Buddhists would benefit from a greater understanding of the traditions outside of their own.

An indispensable resource in accomplishing this is His Holiness’ book, co-written with Venerable Thubten Chodron, Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions.
