Survey: calling Buddhist chaplains in north America!

By Munisha on Thu, 10 Dec, 2020 - 12:58

The Mapping Buddhist Chaplains in North America Research Survey attempts to answer fundamental questions about Buddhist chaplaincy as a professional field. While several universities have been training and graduating Buddhist chaplains—some for more than a decade—there are no clear data on how many and where Buddhist chaplains are currently working.

European Buddhist Union condemns abuse by Buddhist teachers

By Munisha on Thu, 10 Dec, 2020 - 09:21

Prompted by recent allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of Tibetan teacher Dagri Rinpoche, the European Buddhist Union has published this statement on misconduct by Buddhist teachers.

As usual on the last weekend of September, the European Buddhist Union is holding its annual meeting - at Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa in Tuscany, Italy.

The morning has begun with a presentation from the hosts and the local mayor, followed by the...
