Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds

Equal, Open, Inclusive Communities

“According to the Buddha, we are all fundamentally equal, regardless of social standing, wealth, ethnicity, race, gender, or whom we love. The only basis of judgment is our actions. Therefore, in the Buddhist world, there should be no glass ceilings to break through. There should be no immigration quotas or second-class citizens. If the communities we’re developing are not truly open and inclusive, they won’t be strong, vibrant, or enduring.”
– Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
