(TibetanReview.net, Oct04, 2016) – More than 5,700 people are attending four days of religious teaching being given by Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, at the Tsuglakhang, Dharamshala, beginning Oct 3. The teaching has been requested by devotees from Taiwan.

Some 1,000 people attending the teaching are devotees from Taiwan, with 1,650 being from some 64 other countries. Tibetans and some Indians made up the rest.

The subject of the teaching is Aryadeva’s Four Hundred Stanzas on the Middle Way, one of the fundamental works of Mahayana Buddhist philosophy. The work explains how the practices of the stages of yogic deeds enable Mahayana practitioners to attain Buddhahood.

The Dalai Lama began by giving an introductory, explaining the Indian origin of Tibetan Buddhism and asserting the common duty of believers and non-believers alike to think for the betterment of the seven billion human beings on this earth, if we as individuals were all to be automatically benefitted.
