The 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Athens

At the invitation of the Olympic Committee, the Diamond Way Buddhism Foundation attended the world's top athletes at the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens. In the Olympic Village, along with all of the world religions in the "Religious Service Center," a room was provided where the athletes could ask questions about Buddhism and attend lectures and meditations. An international team of Buddhist teachers served the athletes in seven languages for several weeks.
