Dharmabyte: Total Transformation

“For me, just being with other young people… actually this is really important… there’s an energy, there’s a natural friendship, there’s a speaking the Dharma in our own language, in our own time, with our own metaphors, about the life decisions we are currently trying to make” - Singhamati, 2015.
