We are very happy to announce that Burkhard Scherer will be coming to give teachings in Hong Kong. Burkhard was born 1971 in Germany and took refuge with Lama Ole Nydahl in 1999. He teaches Religious Studies (Buddhist Studies) at the university in Canterbury (U.K.) and works for the Diamond Way university project ITAS (International Institute of Tibetan and Asian Studies) in Karma Guen, Spain.
