Buddhist Voices: Abhayadana - Giving the Gift of Fearlessness to Women in India

By Candradasa on Mon, 9 Sep, 2019 - 13:01

A great conversation with the quietly brilliant Abhayadana about her Buddhist work and practice in India. Her name means ‘Giver of Fearlessness’ - and this is something she has dedicated her life to, helping support and free women in her community from the stigma of social caste and the violence that often goes with it.

We hear about her personal approach via meditation and reflection on the Buddhist figure of Kshitigarbha (Jizo) who descends into hell realms to liberate suffering beings. And...

Reflections on the Karuna Telephone Campaign

By Karuna on Wed, 31 Jul, 2019 - 14:59

It was hard to explain to my friends what I was doing for six weeks. I flippantly described my volunteer work at Karuna as a mixture of meditation, group therapy and telesales.

And yet, I have come away from these six weeks with a profound sense of gratitude that...
