For the Earth: The Earth is My Witness, by Aryadrishti, Sunday June 21st

USA 11am PST | México 1pm | USA 2pm EST | UK & IE 7pm | Europe 8pm CET

When Mara challenged the Buddha on the verge of enlightenment on his worth, he called the earth as his witness. The earth now is a witness to all the greed, hatred, and delusion of centuries of human occupation. Just as the Buddha saw waves of human suffering unending, it goes on. And the earth also witnesses the good done by all beings everywhere everyday. The good that heals and awakens. 

How do we face the suffering of the world with an open heart and act with aware kindness. How do we keep it up in the face of overwhelming odds? How do we stay connected with the good in ourselves and each other to inspire a way of being worthy of the earth’s witness

Join Aryadrishti as she shares her reflections on the earth as our witness.
