By upekshapriya on Tue, 30 Aug, 2016 - 20:20

Yashosagar, Vajratara, and Prajnaketu look forward and share their dreams of the future. Re-visiting the perspectives of Sangharakshita’s talk ‘A Blueprint for a New World’ we hear about the wider Dharma vision of Dr. Ambedkar in India, whose emphasis on liberty, equality, and fraternity is more relevant than ever. We are invited to imagine a future where Buddhist Centres serve as hubs that support their communities in more and more ways as economic and social conditions change. And we have...

The invitation to examine our own perspectives and biases is both essential...

Here are the new beings introducing themselves, complete with beautiful photographs by Upekshapriya at Clear Vision.
