Interviewees – among others – are Pál Farkas (Dharma Gate Buddhist College, Budapest), Lajos Pressing (Árya Maitreya Mandala Buddhist Community), László Mireisz (Dharma Gate Buddhist Church of Hungary), Láma Csöpel (Hungarian Karma-Kagyüpa Buddhist Community), Antal Dobossy (Dharma Gate Zen Community), Tamás Agócs (Tibetologist), Tibor Derdák (Dr. Ámbédkar School), Andrea Beáta Tóth (Buddhist Vipassana Society), and Gábor Karsai (Dharma Gate Buddhist College, Budapest).

The book intends to show the inner plurality and creativity of the Buddhist movement in Hungary.
