Buddhism flourished for a thousand years and more after the Buddha died. By then Buddhism had spread to many countries and languages. For many reasons, Buddhism then began to decline and virtually died out in India altogether until very recently. The Dharma talk for the celebration of Nehan will explore the final teachings of the Buddha, how and why the fortunes of Indian Buddhism changed, and especially, how Buddhism is reviving in India and changing, in its turn, the fortunes of millions of Indians.
Jiko gave this talk on Sunday, February 16. Listen to this talk.
