India: Buddha’s Homeland, Our Inspiration

Gautama Buddha was a prince of the Shakya clan of the Himalayan foothills that are now part of India. 2,500 years later we continue to be inspired by his practice and teachings. In this issue we explore KF’s connection to this amazing country, beginning with a colorful slideshow of Rinpoche’s reasons to love India. Throughout 2013 we emphasized Khyentse Foundation’s core purposes: to nurture the source of the Buddhadharma and to prepare for the future. In India we find the past and future not so clearly delineated. As Rinpoche told us, there is something about the Indian DNA that triggers an “appetite for nonduality.”
