Social, Ecological and Racial Justice
As a spiritual community, we recognise the suffering caused by human actions motivated by greed, hatred and ignorance. We are aware of the suffering of our natural world, and by that endured by living beings, of past, present and future generations, human and non-human alike.
Through our Buddhist practice we are dedicated to transforming greed, hatred and delusion into wisdom and compassion. Starting with our own practice, we work to establish an alternative way of life that is based on stillness, simplicity and contentment, and act to relieve suffering where we can.
