International Seminar to Be held at KIBI

International Seminar:

An Overview of the Role of Buddhism and Buddhist Philosophy in the Realm of Growth and Development of International Culture

to be held at KIBI (dhukhang) from 5th – 7th February 2020


Since its establishment & inauguration in 1990, KIBI has flourished greatly. Various courses in Buddhist philosophy, meditation, translation and the like have been conducted successfully, and a vast number of students have benefitted from those. All these wonderful developments & Dharma activities arose first and foremost through the personal efforts of the late 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, and the Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche, who were the driving forces in establishing the institute; as well as the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, Thaye Dorje, who is the life force of the present activities. Along with their blessings, the tireless, dedicated efforts of many people bore fruit, and KIBI progressively developed into the place of learning & practicing authentic Buddha Dharma that we know today.

Therefore, as 2020 marks its 30th anniversary, we would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge & appreciate the great determination of every single person who was part of this journey. Through organizing this international seminar, we intend to offer a platform for sharing knowledge and getting into exchange in order to foster wisdom & compassion.

Therefore, we warmly welcome everyone to attend this joyful occasion for engaging once again in living Buddha Dharma! Please join us:
