Deepening Dharma practice, building sangha, outreach to other people - all of these are happening in Mexico at the Cuernavaca Buddhist Centre thanks to gifts to FutureDharma Fund.

The Cuernavaca sangha have worked together to create a library full of Dharma books and electronic resources.

They tell us that the political situation in Mexico has led to much social inequality. Many young people have never had the opportunity to use a library. The sangha have created the library as a place of inspiration and hope. A place where people can learn and exchange ideas. And the library isn’t just for the sangha - it’s open to the public, meaning that more and more people can access the Dharma.

Watch this short video (3mins, 36 secs) to see how the Cuernavaca sangha are passing on what they’ve been given.

This is great to see, thank you for sharing Liz - an inspiring project and moving to hear from the folk using the library about how important the library is given the unrest in wider culture in Mexico.
