Gifts to Create Harmony

In this issue


The most important thing is harmony, unity in the organization. That is what has brought success so far – unity. There are many students who are like gold, like diamonds, holding the quality of compassion towards others, kind-hearted, next is to be intelligent, understanding the Dharma, and then to be responsible. It is particularly due to the harmony, the unity, that there has been success and that we have been able to offer this much service.

- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

New Book by His Holiness
and Ven. Thubten Chodron

Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions Buddhism:
One Teacher, Many Traditions

His Holiness the Dalai Lama and American Buddhist nun Thubten Chodron map out the convergence and divergence of the two major Buddhist movements— the Sanskrit traditions of Tibet and East Asia and the Pāli traditions of Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. The authors consider Buddhism’s core practices and tenets, such as the four noble truths, the practice of meditation, the cultivation of love, and the meaning of nirvāna, and how the traditions sometimes agree and sometimes differ in their interpretations. The authors’ respectful approach illuminates the many ways that all forms of Buddhism, amid their rich diversity, share a common heritage and common goals.
