Venerable Telo Tulku Rinpoche:
"Buddhism Post-Soviet Union"
Buddhism has been part of Russian civilization for at least the last 400 years, even though many people may not be aware that Buddhism was ever part of life in Russia. Then came the Bolshevik Revolution, and the rule of communism was enforced. We can scarcely imagine what happened then, when all religious traditions in Soviet Union were destroyed by the iron fist of Joseph Stalin. But what happened after the sudden fall of the iron curtain? Telo Tulku Rinpoche will give a detailed account of how Buddhism was reintroduced, revived and restored in the post–Soviet-Union period.
