Dear Young Friends
On September 19, 2008, the Wake Up movement for young Buddhists and non-Buddhists for a healthy and compassionate society was announced. Wake Up is a community of young Dharma practitioners who want to help their society which is overloaded with intolerance, discrimination, craving, anger and despair. They practice the Five Mindfulness Trainings, ethical guidelines offered by the Buddha; the most concrete practice of true love and compassion, clearly showing the way towards a life in harmony with each other and with the Earth. If you are a young practitioner we encourage you to learn about the Wake Up movement in your country. You can learn more at http://wkup.org. Today’s podcast is dedicated to young people and is taken from our 2008 Teen Retreat- Be True, Be Beautiful. Let us know if you would like to hear more podcasts for youth.
