Buddhism & Democracy

            Democracy and Buddhism are compatiable, in the sense that both put people's interest above anything else,says one of the panelists at a roundable discussion held at ICT this Firday, on the topic " Electing Leaders without a Territory: Challenges to Tibetan Democracy in Exile." While the 2011 exile Kalon Prime Minister's elections have become the hot topic in Tibet dispora, such a thoughtful discourse by outside observers was timely and appropriate.
