His Holiness said belief in religion results in more peace of mind and happiness.

The teaching is attended by thousands of devotees, including nearly a thousand Taiwanese, Singaporean, Romanian, few Chinese from the mainland China.

His Holiness will continue the teaching on The Diamond Sutra (dorjee chotpa), Geshe Chekewa’s Seven Point-Mind Training (lojong dhondunma) & Tsongkhapa’s The Three Principal Paths (lamtso namsum) till 18 October. His Holiness will confer the Avalokiteshvera Initiation ( Chenresig wang) on 18 October. The teaching is being given at the request of Taiwanese devotees.
