By Sadayasihi on Mon, 16 Mar, 2020 - 11:57

“In a crisis you have to find new ways to be, you can’t just carry on with the old ways…Buddhism gives you something new…a way of finding happiness, that comes from a different place.”

On a recent visit to Venezuela, Parami speaks with Abhayasara (ordained in October) and Maria Elena, Wilman and Arsenio who are all involved in the Merida sangha.
