WoW! Seemed like an Olympic event! Wish I was there.

The Buddhist Communities of China, Taiwan and Hong Kong convened a huge gathering in Wuxi, China, and Taipei, Taiwan, called the World Buddhist Forum. Entitled “A Harmonious World, A Synergy of Conditions,” this second Forum (the first was in 2003, in Hangzhou,)  brought together representatives from 50 Buddhist countries, the Forum met from March 28th to April 1st, 2009. This collaborative project used Buddhism to strengthen peaceful international ties across the Taiwan Straits and around the world. Over 1700 persons attended the opening day. The conference took place in Wuxi at The Ling Shan Fan Gong, a new venue that cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build, and was completed in two and a half years, only for this event.
