From our friend Anik Ghose at Tzu Chi:
We’re just 8 days away from our Seattle screening of the “On the Buddha’s Path: http://here https://www.tzuchi.us/onbuddhaspath/Compassion in Action” Short Film Tour and we can’t wait to get together with our peers in the Buddhist community and the general public.
On Saturday, October 20, at the Tzu Chi Seattle Office, we’ll show films about everyday people who show us that compassion- an integral principle in Buddhism- can have a significant impact when put into practice. It’s something we recognize we need to see more examples of.
There’ll be a Q&A session and panel, too, focusing on prison outreach and support for ex-offenders, one of our society’s most neglected populations. Knowing how powerfully audiences have reacted to seeing examples of socially engaged Buddhism across the country, we cannot wait to bring our films to the Emerald City.
We were totally sold out in NYC, and the same energy and momentum continued through St. Louis, Missouri, and Little Rock, Arkansas. We really felt the love as people got together to celebrate the power of compassion and how it can relieve real-life afflictions.
Our special guests will include Fleet Maull, founder of the Prison Mindfulness Institute, whose work is featured in the film “From Trials to Freedom.” He served 14 years in prison, so we know his pearls of wisdom will give us incredible insight into how, together, we can make a difference in our communities.
