Posted by Candradasa to Buddhist Centre Features on Fri, 15 Dec, 2017 - 21:46

A gem of a conversation with Maitripala, from Melbourne (via Emerald City) in Australia, describing her beautiful practice of Metta Walks across the continent and the Buddhas In My Pocket project that has grown up around it. Her evocation of a modern day pilgrimage, engaging with strangers and sharing moments of deep connection and mutual kindness, is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. A shining example of living out the image of Indra’s Net, where every...

Parami again from “Oceania”! She’s in conversation here with her friend Maitripala who has been living in Europe for a year but is now back home and engaging with women seeking ordination into the Triratna Buddhist Order.
