Buddhism in the Modern World

Tommy Boggs, an experienced Buddhist teacher from Denmark, will be visiting Hong Kong to give a talk about Buddhism in the Modern World. In each culture, the teachings of the Buddha find the form that suits them best. One can compare them to a diamond: on a red cloth it shines red, on a blue cloth it looks blue; regardless, the diamond itself remains the same. Without losing their essence, the teachings of the Buddha have adapted to the cultural conditions of different societies and times and are as relevant today as they were 2,500 years ago. Today, in our modern societies, the timeless view of the Diamond Way (skt. Vajrayana) and its methods are more and more appealing to educated and independent people around the world. This talk will explore how we can use these methods in our daily lives.
