International Sangha Forum Bodh Gaya Day 2

December 21, 2023

On this solstice morning, the Flame of Hope team had an audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama together with the Japanese members of the International Sangha Forum, which every year brings together over 2,000 distinguished Buddhist monks and scholars from around the world. The meeting was arranged by Dr Arya, the representative of Tibet House Japan.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama greeted everyone kindly and gave his blessings to all present.

His Holiness received a copy of the Flame of Hope’s latest CD release entitled “Dalai Lama (Ocean of Wisdom)” by Aminadabu, the official Flame of Hope band.

All proceeds from the sale and distribution of the CD will go to support Tibet. You can find the distribution here:

Aminadabu’s music made a big impact on the organizers of the conference. Upon arrival at the venue, Aminadab’s ‘Peace Pagoda’ was playing. Ryokyu Endo, President of the Flame of Hope International Committee, will address the attendees and give a keynote lecture entitled “A unique way to share the Dharma in the 21st century – Advances in applied Buddhism.”
