Kagypa[edit]

Kagypa school appeared in Russia only 20 years ago and has nothing to do with historical buddhism in Russia .Historical ruler of Russian buddhists is Gelugpa scool and its there are monastery in Kalmökk ,Buryat Tuva and so it has been already III centuries,No need to point Kagypa as a major scool thats wrong,And the center has been always after II WW Buryat Ivolga monastery, and headlama of Russian budhists has always been Khambo Lama from Buryat,In our days Khambo lama is Ajusheyev.--VanemTao 09:00, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

The article suffers from numerous technical errors (spelling and such). --Smack (talk) 06:54, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

I had a go at fixing some of this article. Mainly the Buddhism in science. Contains the curious term "buddhalogical," I have no idea what to do with it. [User:Cashie|Cashie]] 12:02, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
Thank you. There are many red links. I am unsure the scientific applications of Buddhism, it seems more of a philosophy to me... science could measure any effects of practises I suppose. Tyciol (talk) 14:09, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Holidays[edit]

We all want to know what holidays they celebrate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.8.198.2 (talk) 18:11, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

TOC[edit]

The article is long enough to have a TOC. I added one, but there's just one section (besides the "See also" and "External links")--Esteban Barahona (talk) 17:22, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Copyright problem[edit]

‎ This article needs to be rewritten as part of a large-scale clean-up project of multiple article copyright infringement.
