The roots of suffering and dissatisfaction are found within the mind. Only by taking mind seriously, and uncovering the wisdom that is hidden within, can we hope to find liberation from the personal, social and environmental plagues that torment the modern world.
The recording of our last Dharma talk with Andy Karr is now available. Andy Karr is a teacher, author, and photographer who offers profound insights into dharma and mind.
His latest book, Into the Mirror: A Buddhist Journey through Mind, Matter, and the Nature of Reality, released by Shambhala Publications in May 2023, shows how we can make a deep Mahayana journey in an age of materialism.
