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)!

The Spiritual Community Beyond Borders

Wed, 6 Jun, 2018 - 11:10

As the Mainland Europe Young Buddhist Convention in Valencia draws nearer, three ‘Young Buddhists’ from Valencia share a bit about their inspiration to practice the Dharma and how they have benefitted.

Estela:
