The Circus Is In Town


Here’s the link to an article that I wrote with help from Venerable Tenzin Lhamo: Elephant Walk tests the Buddhist principles of a trained mind and inner peace. The Post published it the day after Ringling Brothers paraded six elephants and 24 horses through the streets of D.C. at night.

Actually, the article is primarily about meditation and mind training.

  1. Great article Tendrol! The elephant is a wonderful animal and a great Buddhist symbol.

    Your article is an excellent example of how Buddhist methods can be employed in active causes to affect change in today’s society.
