The subject of this talk: “What are the societal implications of the teachings on the emptiness of all phenomena?”


The practical teachings on the seven points of mind training attributed to the great Indian Buddhist teacher Atisha Dipankara Shrijnana, born of royal heritage in Bengal in 982 c.e. and the recent sadhana of Kindness of Sakyong Mipham rinpoche, can be of great help in the actual societal dilemma’s we are facing.
