Are Buddhists idol worshippers? What is the place of shame in Buddhism? Why do Buddhists meditate? Do Buddhists believe that god creates breast cancer? Do Buddhists have to be vegetarian? Do Buddhists practise confession? What is the most important principle in Buddhism? Is Buddhism a religion? Is the Dalai Lama a god? Why do Buddhists bow to statues of the Buddha? Do Buddhists sometimes think violence is necessary? How can I be happier?

The evening will start by shaking hands with everyone and a guided meditation, then following a short tea break there will be a questions and answer session. The evening will end in silence and reflection.
