14 – 19 October B.E. 2557 (2014)
Baoji-Shanxi, People’s Republic of China
Buddhism and Public: Benefit-Charity
It was the first time for the People’s Republic of China to host the WFB General Conference and Baoji was chosen as venue of the conference because it was said to be among the first cities to embrace Buddhism when the religion was introduced to China before spreading to and flourished in other parts of China and served as the beacon of Buddhism throughout Asia. Furthermore, it is the city where the Buddha’s finger relic is enshrined.
