What Buddhism Has to Offer the Modern World

In August this year, at Sogyal Rinpoche’s invitation, professor Samdhong Rinpoche gave a public talk at Lerab Ling, Rigpa’s main retreat centre in the South of France. More than 500 people, including representatives from different religious traditions and local government officials, were present in Lerab Ling to listen to the talk.

The inspiring and thought-provoking talk by Professor Samdhong Rinpoche was also watched by about 1,000 people live via the internet, in countries such as Australia,Israel, the Czech Republic & Brazil. People were struck by the earnest and rich speech, and afterwards said felt they better understood their responsibility as citizen of an interdependent world.

The complete talk is now available to watch again from the Rigpa Live Video Streaming website. The public talks by Mingyur Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, and Khandro Rinpoche are also available to watch again.
