About Book:

This book is the first in a series of volumes of the proceedings of the Global Buddhist Congregation (GBC) that took place in November 2011 in New Delhi. This was one of the largest Buddhist gatherings ever to take place on Indian soil and was timed to commemorate 2,600 years of Sambodhiprapti-the enlightened awakening of the Lord Buddha.

The delegates of the GBC adopted a resolution for the formation of a global Buddhist umbrella body; the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) under the motto "Collective Wisdom, United Voice". The IBC is a membership organization that focuses on the common ground that all Buddhists share while respecting the rich diversity of Buddhist traditions and practices. Bodh the GBC and IBC initiative was convened by Asoka Mission, a Buddhist centre in New Delhi headed by Ven Lama Lobzang. He has held various public offices including being the founder and longest-serving member of the National Commission for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. He also runs the Asoka Mission Medi-Care Initiative providing critical medical treatment to people from the remote Himalayan regions of India and Nepal.

The book includes a message from His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama delivered as a valedictory address. It also contains papers from scholars like ASHIN NYANISSARA (Different Rivers, Same Water), SOGYAL RINPOCHE ( 21st Century Buddhism: A Global Force for Good), GESHE LHAKDOR (Buddhism in a Changing Society), GESHE TENZIN ZOPA (Challenges and Solutions to the Preservation of Buddhism), JACK PETRANKER (The Voice of the Dharma and the Future of Buddhism), LAMA SURYA DAS (Buddhism in the West and its Encounter and Modernity), JOSE I. CABEZON (The Principles of Political Ethics preserved in Tibetan Language Sources), ALEXANDER BERZIN (The Journey of Buddhism), KATIA BUFFETRILLE (Tibetan Pilgrims and Pilgrimages in the PeopleÍs Republic of China), and VESNA A. WALLACE (Buddhism Laws in Mongolia).
