By Centre Team on Sat, 21 May, 2022 - 12:01

When tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees began to cross the border with Poland, the Triratna community at Krakow Buddhist Centre got involved with the same great generosity that has marked the Polish people’s response to war flaring up uncomfortably close to home.

Nevertheless, the games of separation that we play, through force of habit, produce aversion and conflict, polarization and difference in our lives and the world. Individually and globally this is a cause...
