By Liz_Bassett on Thu, 4 Jun, 2020 - 15:13

The world is in lockdown. In many ways the world is on fire. In this compelling talk, Subhuti focusses on the suffering of thousands of people in India, and rejoices in the Order members and mitras who are bringing food and the Dharma to them.

Some of you may have heard reports about what is happening in India - the suffering of migrant workers and daily wage earners who are struggling to find food in the lockdown.

What is really impressive is how the Sangha has responded to the challenge. The ordination teams are galvanised and inspired. They are leading the Sangha: guiding and encouraging Order Members, mitras and friends to provide a coordinated and wholehearted response to the immediate practical needs of the people around them.

By vajratara on Fri, 24 Apr, 2020 - 15:26

There is mass migration with migrant workers returning to their home villages. If people do have homes, they often live with many family members sharing a...
