By Lobsang Tenchoe



DHARAMSALA. Oct 12: Men-Tsee-Khang, the Tibetan Medical and Astro Institute’s department of Body, Mind and Life began its 4th International Conference on Body, Mind and Life at Men-Tsee-khang college’s auditorium earlier today.

His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje graced the conference as the Chief Guest.  Others in attendance for the occasion include Special Guest, Choekyong Wangchuk, Health Kalon (Minister) of Central Tibetan Administration(CTA), Kyabje Kirti Rinpoche and other dignitaries from CTA and Men-Tsee-Khang.

The Chief Guest and the Special Guest launched three books on presentations of 1st ,2nd and 3rd Body, Mind and Life conference at the inaugural function of the conference.

“This conference is what His Holiness the Dalai Lama advocates. The western scholars (modern science) and eastern scholars (Tibetan Medical and astrologers) will exchange and deliberate on their findings and research at the conference and it will surely benefit the entire humanity,” health Kalon said in his address.

“This is a very important conference as it focuses on inner peace and happiness of human being. I urge the western and eastern scholars to have successful discussions and deliberations at the conference,” His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje remarked.

“My observation after witnessing several conferences and meetings is that many a times we drift away from the actual topic or the subject, be it the speaker or the questioner. This is something we should do away with,” the Karmapa concluded.

Eight speakers, two each from the field of Buddhist philosophy, Tibetan medicine, Tibetan astrology and modern science will address at the conference that will be be attended by monks, doctors, astrologers, students and foreigners.

The three-day 4th International Body, Mind and Life conference will be held over Oct 12-14.
