On October 29, 2018, the fifth World Buddhism Forum opened in Putian, Fujian Province. The 11th Panchen Lama Erdeni Choskyi Gyalpo, a member of the Standing Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and vice president of the Chinese Buddhist Association, attended the opening ceremony and gave a speech in which drawing from Buddhist doctrine, he emphasized the concept of a common human destiny. He said that constructing a common human destiny is increasingly becoming a consensus among the international community. Buddhist concepts such as “harmony and coexistence, equality and tolerance, benevolence and wisdom, mercy and compassion, and harmony” are still useful for solving the predicaments of modern civilization and can provide wisdom and inspiration for seeking new meanings of common human values.
It is reported that more than a thousand people, both representatives from the field of Buddhism as well as people from all different backgrounds, from more than 50 countries came to the forum.
The 11th Panchen Lama pointed out that equality and tolerance are the bridges with which to build a harmonious relationship between all mankind and a cure for crises in international relations. He said that we are all one family enjoying the same blue sky and living in the same home. There should only be mutual respect, equality, and tolerance between the nations of the world. Neighbors should be kind to each other and trust and cultivate friendships with each other. Only when people undertake the common destiny of all mankind will the world be able to advance forward smoothly and steadily.
After the forum's morning program concluded, nearly 20 Tibetan Buddhist rinpoches participating in the forum met with the 11th Panchen Lama. The 11th Panchen Lama encouraged everyone to take advantage of the forum to learn from Buddhists from other regions and to gain an international perspective. He emphasized that the most important thing for the development of Buddhism is the “seed” within each person's heart. As long as the seed for Buddhist development is there, then the flower will bloom.

I would be interrested to join a Lhasa to Kathmandu tour in November (26th novembre). Do you have other tourists on this tour and what would be the price of it for one or two person?
Dear Mr. Si***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. We currently have one departure date on 26th November for Lhasa to Kathmandu group tour, but there is no person joining in at present. If you are two persons together, we are able to open this tour for you. If you are only one person, here we suggest that you can join our 8 days Tibet Mt. Everest group tour, the major scenic spots of this tour are almost the same as the Lhasa to Kathmandu tour, the difference is that you need to get back to Lhasa and fly from Lhasa to Kathmandu. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Best regards.
