Triratna America - Dayamudra: Jai Bhim International

By Candradasa on Thu, 20 Jun, 2013 - 20:25
Dayamudra runs Jai Bhim International out of San Francisco, working with Dalit communities in India to escape the stigma of caste through education. This is a great interview where her natural passion for a cause that’s dear to her heart really shines through. An excellent introduction to the injustices of ‘untouchability’ in India and to how to move beyond it. Practically inspiring words from an inspired lady!
