Posted by Satyalila to Fifty Years, Fifty Voices on Thu, 10 May, 2018 - 15:00

I had been looking for so long.  And then I saw my first woman Order Member. And that was like the ‘fourth sight’… that inspired me to go for refuge.
Amarapushpa

It’s not something that has to do with ideas and concepts… It’s about more practical wholeness, with your heart.

Dharma library opens in Mexico
