The theme of contemplation includes sub-topics like personal introspection, mindfulness practice, meditation, and reflection on contemporary life issues. Cultural exchange incorporates interreligious dialogue, indigenous Buddhist experience, inter-generational dialogue, and Buddhist transcultural exchange, expressed through music, literature, drama, painting, social media, and the martial arts. Finally, social action takes many forms, including charitable activities, social entrepreneurship, community leadership, and other ways of transforming society.
The 15th Sakyadhita Conference will be a forum for making connections across cultures and traditions, exploring a wide range of Buddhist teachings, values, and techniques for living a meaningful life.
