Engaged Buddhism: Listening And Responding With Compassion To World Hunger
Monday, September 16, 5:30 p.m.
While on campus in October 2012, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama reminded us that, “Peace must come through our actions,” encouraging all of us to engage in acts of compassion and kindness that might create change. This lecture by the founder of Buddhist Global Relief (BGR), will explore ways in which engaged listening can move to acts of compassion, particularly in regard to world hunger.
