A message from Lama Surya Das

We are in a transition, a pivot point, and while things
are changing we have a great opportunity for creative
imagination, transformative thinking, and concerted action.
If real positive change is going to manifest in this
world—systemic change, as well as altered hearts and
minds–  we need to commit to it together.
Black Lives Matter.
Life is precious, miraculous, tenuous and fleeting.
We are honored to stand with all, especially the marginalized
and downtrodden, and walk side by side on this fearless
journey of awakening, equality and justice.

 

“There can be no peace as long as there is grinding poverty,
social injustice, inequality, oppression, environmental
degradation, and as long as the weak and small continue
to be trodden by the mighty and powerful.

— His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama
