Simharava's Reflections on the Bodhicitta - Turning Arrows into Flowers: Day 2

By Sadayasihi on Sat, 16 May, 2020 - 11:17

Simharava, living in the women’s residential Buddhist community in Berlin, Germany, talks about how she is trying to help alleviate suffering at the moment and, in particular, shares her thoughts on the Buddhist figure of the Avalokiteshvara - associated with Great Compassion - who holds the wish-fulfilling jewel to his heart.

On Friday 17th January, the Toluca Buddhist Centre in Mexico was formally inaugurated. The Toluca Buddhist Centre arose from the friendship of three friends who wanted to share their practice with each other and with other people.
