by YC.Dhardhowa, The Tibet Post International , 12 February 2011

Taipei, Taiwan -- Tibet Religious Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama based in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan organised a religious discourse on "Parting from the four attachments" by Sakya Dungsei Ratna Vajra Rinpoche on the evening of 10 and 11 February in Taipei.

This is the 9th teaching series by eminent religious figures from different traditions of Tibetan Buddhism organised by the Foundation since 2003. About 300 Taiwanese devotees attended the first day of the teaching, said a report released by a Tibetan official media,

Mr Dawa Tsering, Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Taiwan, extended his gratitude to Rinpoche for giving the time and bestowing this important teaching. He also gave a brief introduction of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly the history of Sakya lineage. Rinpoche also mentioned that the primary objective to organise such religious event is to serve the Buddhist devotees in Taiwan and also to preserve the unique and rare oral religious transmission of Tibetan Buddhism.

Rinpoche gave the teaching in Tibetan, while Geshe Jampal Chozin, the religious teacher of the Foundation, translated it into Chinese.

The religious foundation already has held nine other discussion after Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama asked the foundation to organise more religious discussions that will help give Taiwanese Buddhists a better understand of Tibetan Buddhism and improve their religious study.
