The Inner Path Festival of Buddhism is the pioneering festival in India of Buddhist philosophy, aesthetics, art, culture and films.

The Inner Path attempts to take a new resurgence in Buddhist thought to a wider range of urban audiences at a time when violence and strife disrupt the fundamentals of our national secular culture. Each edition of the Festival presents to its audience celebrated works of visual & performing arts and other forms of creative and cultural expression, philosophy, discourse and discussions related to Buddhism from across the world. In the past we have had discourses by people of such eminence as His Holiness the 12th Kenting Tai Situpa, Geshe Dorji Damdul, Ajarn Sulak Sivaraksa, Dr. Ravindra Panth, Prof. Askar Chingozovich Aikmatov, Prof. Lokesh Chandra, Dharmacharya Shantum Seth and Venerable Sumati Sasana.

This year the Festival is being held in collaboration with the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) and the Korean Cultural Centre. It will be held at the Alliance Française de Delhi, 72 Lodi Estate, from 21 to 24 November.

Organised by NETPAC-India, the 3rd edition of the 4-day Festival is scheduled between 21 and 24 November 2014 at the Alliance Francaise de Delhi, Lodhi Estate. The Festival comprises around 15 feature and documentary films on Buddhism, an Art Exhibition with about 19 artists whose work is related to Buddhism, an art camp, a Thangka painting demonstration, Discourses by eminent Buddhist practitioners and scholars, a panel discussion with artists and filmmakers, an opening night recital by Venerable Ani Choying Drolma, and for the closing night on the 24th we have a performance by the celebrated Kung-fu Nuns from Ladakh.
