India owns copyright to Buddhism: Karmapa Lama

"Who owns the copyright to Buddhism - the noble land of India," the Karmapa said.

"India was the birth place of the Buddha and the wisdom of the mahasiddhas - the early practitioners and scholars of the faith - came from India to the snowy land of Tibet. And it (Buddhism) became a true lineage of experience, realization and freedom from confusion. The lineage has remained unbroken for ages- abiding for hundreds of years in Tibet," the Karmapa said in his keynote address.
