Event description

Description

A political radical often seeks drastic changes to transform a whole social system. A spiritual radical tirelessly works to discover ultimate truth in herself. Our spiritual imperative is to transform our inner 'system' for the sake of realizing our highest potential - for the benefit of all. Join Ayyā Medhānandī, who has been a Buddhist nun for 30 years, in an exploration of the heart of a true radical.
