Return of the Bodhisattva

By mokshini on Wed, 5 Jul, 2017 - 08:09

Low Countries young Buddhists retreat April 2017

Gerda writes:

On a sunny, cloudy and windy Easter weekend in April, 27 young buddhists from five different countries came together in retreat centre Metta Vihara in the Netherlands to explore the idea of ‘total action, free mind’.
