(TibetanReview.net, Mar04, 2015) – “Over 127” monks and nuns belonging to monasteries of the four officially recognized schools of Tibetan Buddhism and the pre-Buddhist Tibetan religion Bon took part in a three-day seminar at Dharmashala, India, beginning Mar 1. The seminar, described as the first of its kind, was organized by the Department of Religion and Culture of the exile Tibetan administration at Dharmshala.

The aim of the seminar, said the exile administration on its Tibet.net website Mar 2, was to foster the preservation and progression of Tibetan Buddhism and to affirm harmonious relations between the different schools of Tibetan Buddhism and Bon religion.
