Interview about Buddhism on TVM

Adrian Caruana was invited to be interviewed about Buddhism on the show “Intervista Ma’ Bundy” by the popular local presenter John Bundy, The program was transmitted live at about 7.00pm on Friday 20th of September 2013. The topics covered included the meaning of Buddhism, Buddhist meetings in Malta, how the emanation  of H.H. the Dalai Lama is found, Buddhist views on life  and in conclusion the non violent aspect of Buddhism was discussed, including the fact that even though China invaded Tibet in 1949 and many atrocities were committed and are still being committed in Tibet,  the non violent approach was never compromised.
