From Dharma Relief — the online response to the coronavirus crisis created by Guo Gu of the Tallahassee Chan Center — comes a new video featuring multiple Buddhist teachers offering advice and leading us in practices to help us in the face of Covid-19.
Included in the video are Guo Gu, Jack Kornfield of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Dharma Drum abbot Guo Yuan, Rinzai Zen teacher Meido Moore, Tibetan Buddhist teacher Thubten Chodron, Zen teacher John Tarrant, Narayan Helen Liebenson of Cambridge Insight Meditation Center, Dharma Drum abbess and teacher Chang Wu, Barre Center for Buddhist Studies executive director Richard Henning, and Rinzai Zen teacher Jeff Shore.
