Native American Buddhist Spirituality (live)

Ananda M. (Dharma Meditation Initiative, Los Angeles), Jen, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly

Buddhism arrived in the Americas long before Spanish Catholicism and British Christianity.

So when Buddhism returned, it had a natural affinity for Native American traditions particularly of the Southwest and Mexico (Mesoamerica).

Our history of Buddhist contact was wiped from memory by centuries of European colonialism, but the core shamanic worldview remained.

FREE LIVE EVENT: L.A., Feb. 22, 2018, 6:30pm
Dharma Meditation Initiative, Los Angeles - Pasa Dharma - Dharma Punx Valley
On Thursday we will talk with a local Kizh/Tongva (Los Angeles' pre-Columbus tribe) American Indian Buddhist, smudge with sage, use essential oils and crystals, talk about the world's largest pyramid (which is not in Egypt but in the Americas, in Cholula, Mexico), and complete the loop of the circle.
