Overview

Philosophy or religion, way of life or way of being, Buddhism never ceases to intrigue. Its multiple facets bear witness to the diversity of its paths, and its innumerable aspects can disorient the newcomer. The essence however remains, a deep root common to all those searching for knowledge: a man, anchored in a moment of history, awakened to affirm that it is within the power of everyone to attain wisdom. Metamorphosis is not sudden, cannot happen from one day to the next; it demands reflection and time, the reading of many symbols. The renewed interest that Buddhism has enjoyed over the past years - led by its spiritual and temporal guide, the Dalai Lama - has made it possible to approach the meaning and origins of this teaching more fully.
