Survey: calling Buddhist chaplains in north America!

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

By Centre Team on Mon, 31 Aug, 2020 - 02:40

The first full day of the online International Council. The blue sky is behind us and all around, and we’re with Aryadrishti and Sravaniya from Canada and the USA. In some ways a sobering, if hopeful, take on what a Dharma community has to offer when faced with deep, systemic suffering.
