Rainforest Mind: Engaged Buddhism with Ayya Yeshe
Ayya Yeshe

In this episode I’m in conversation with Ven. Ayya Yeshe, about her socially engaged Buddhist work. What led her to social engagement? How does helping fit with Buddhist practice?

She talks about how her experiences as a Tibetan Nun helped her to empathise with oppressed groups, and her socially engaged work in India with the Dalit community, particularly with woman and girls.

Make a donation to support her work here, through the Bodhichitta Foundation website.

  1. Very interesting listening thanks. Reminds me of the importance of opening myself up to inner change and how that change extends much farther beyond just me. All of our efforts, no matter how seemingly small and insignificant, are important contributions to the great cause! The reach of Nembutsu is vast and powerful!
