The trust provides medical assistance and care to people from the Himalayan region in India.

Understanding Consciousness

11/3/2018
More
The Yogacara school of Buddhism states that there are eight consciousnesses, and these teach us how to understand consciousness, so we can free ourselves from afflictive emotions, such as anger, selfishness and so on. Personally, I have always found this school of thought to be very logical, even though later schools of Buddhism refute some of the Yogacara findings. I believe that if we want to understand our minds, we need to understand our consciousness.

Can We Forgive The Unforgivable?

7/12/2018
More
When you have lost a loved one through a terrorist act, a drunken driver or any other act of violence, how do you forgive the unforgivable? Does forgiveness mean we just accept what has happened and we surrender to defeat? No, I don’t believe it does. Forgiveness is not about helplessly accepting, giving up, surrendering to defeat, being weak or avoiding justice. It is about how you respond to the terrible wrong and how you can let go of the past and move forward with your life.
