“Is Buddhism still relevant for today’s world?” This is one of many questions which were discussed at the BDCS conference which took place at the Museum für Völkerkunde in Hamburg from 20th to 22nd of June 2018. More than 200 scientists, well-known Buddhist speakers and participants of 14 countries intensively exchanged their knowledge and opinions on the ongoing encounter between Buddhism and contemporary Western societies. In addition, the Dalai Lama sent his greetings and prayers to the conference participants for fruitful and enriching discussions. The conference, which was held in English, was a complete success for all parties.
