17 Jul A Crash Course in Tibetan Buddhism, Culture, and Political Activism
Posted at 08:35h in South AsiaWritten by our 2014 India Gender and Religion team. Arriving in the darkness, the rolling foothills of the Himalayas in Dharamsala were lit up by tiny lights – a magical sight. The next morning we were awoken by another beautiful sight: the sun peaking over Triund, the mountain we were going to climb later that day, and camp out on that night. We took our time on what James, our Program Leader, told us would be a ‘level 3 hike’. Turns out ‘level 3’ is subjective! In fairness, the hike was gorgeous and not so hard when accompanied by group singing, laughs, and story telling.
