Vajragupta and Prajnaketu in conversation on Karuna appeals as a unique context for Dharma practice - sitting in the gap, getting immediate feedback door-to-door, moving towards difficulties, getting ourselves out of the way to make something beyond us possible…

The first knock

Posted by Prajnaketu on Mon, 30 Jul, 2018 - 15:31

I was already late. And it was hot. Very hot. Indian hot. The adrenaline had taken me so far but now my legs were palpably wobbling as I approached the last bend before my destination. The hasty bowl of muesli rumbled restlesslessly in my stomach, rising and falling as the urge to vomit repeatedly came and subsided… Hold it together man… 

I’ve been here before - exams, big talks, lesson observations when I was a trainee teacher - and deep down I know...

Posted by Prajnaketu on Wed, 25 Jul, 2018 - 14:28

Sooo… I’ve just started a six-week fundraising appeal in London with these wonderful people (Mike, Declan, Chris, Ramesh Babar, Vajragupta, and Kusaladevi Spence)! We’re going to be raising money for an amazing charity called Karuna which helps to transform the lives of individuals and communities affected by the tyrannical caste system in India and Nepal. 

We’ve all now arrived and are settling into community we’ll be living in together. For most of us, this is the first time we’ve done anything like this...
