With introduction to the basic philosophy of Buddhism by lying the background – the main teaching text was based on “Opening the eye of the new awareness” by His Holiness written in early sixties. The book focuses mainly to the introduction to Buddhism. His Holiness bestowed the initiation of Manjushri-the embodiment of the transcendental wisdom of all the Buddhas to the participants. Students got the golden opportunity to interact with His Holiness directly during question answer session.
