The Buddha taught ways to creatively face up to life’s challenges, gradually transforming us into wise and courageous bodhisattvas. The challenges we face in the 21st Century are not just personal but complex and global. The bodhisattva training still applies and can transform feelings of overwhelm, anger and distress into inspired and courageous action.
Khemasuri tried teaching herself meditation for a couple of years and found Taraloka after realising she need to ask the question ‘what do you do with an itch?’. He love of meditation lead her to the Dharma and she was ordained in 2005. Khemasuri has experience of rural, urban and Buddhafield Sanghas. She lives in Sheffield and has been co-ordinator for the team that supports the International Order Convenors for some while.
Khemasuri has a strong ‘lay’ interest in science and in particular how we can use ‘systems thinking’ as a way of understanding the Dharma and conditionality in particular.
