After the election, Buddhist American international aid worker Katie Letheren broadens her plea for compassion toward Syrian refugees.
Buddhist Churches of America (BCA) has issued a statement in response to President Donald Trump’s executive order issued last week.
A number of Buddhist teachers and communities took to social media to comment on and respond to Saturday’s “Muslim travel Ban.”
Buddhist American international aid worker Katie Letheren makes an appeal for much-needed compassion when it comes to the Syrian refugee crisis.
The refugee crisis: there’s lots of quibbling (and worse) going on around it. But the reality is, only action can help.
As aid worker Kayla Mueller is mourned around the world, the Tibetans with whom she volunteered are offering prayers and condolences. Mueller, a 26-year-old American, was abducted in Syria in 2013 by Islamic State militants, and held hostage for eighteen months. Her death was confirmed this week. A committed Christian, Mueller was also deeply influenced by Buddhist teachings.
