Buddhadharma : Fall 2011
91 fall 2 01 1 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly local emergency food agencies with a means to ensure a steady supply of nutritious produce. Participating agen- cies choose a plot of land and, with the help of volunteers, they grow food for the people they serve and give any sur- plus to smaller agencies. A grant from BGR enabled the Adopt-a-Plot Program to feed thousands of people living in poverty in Maryland and Pennsylvania. In Haiti, BGR is providing four thou- sand meals a month to several hundred children displaced by earthquake dam- age who are still living in tent cities and squatter communities. The grant is for six months’ worth of food and it is likely to be renewed. Patricia Price, one of BGR’s board of directors and a former employee of CARE, said help- ing Haiti was particularly urgent. “Of all the places I have ever visited,” she said, “Haiti is the one place that still shows up in my nightmares. The fact that Haiti is in the condition it’s in at this time in history is shameful, and it’s in our backyard.” Though Price is on the BGR board, she is a practicing Jew, not a Buddhist. Embracing diversity, BGR welcomes people of all faiths and all branches of Buddhism. In July 2010, BGR was invited to join a task force called the Global Initiative for Faith, Health, and Development, which was established at the National Cathedral in Washington by the Center for Interfaith Action on Global Poverty. Last year, the task force held meetings at the White House to prepare a frame- work for enhancing the role of faith- based organizations in international development. Bhikkhu Bodhi and Behan participated in these landmark meetings with people of other faiths. Now BGR is looking into the possibility of collab- orating on aid projects with Muslim, Christian, and Jewish organizations. Looking to the future, Behan hopes Buddhist Global Relief will help cre- ate a new culture of giving, whereby the people they help will in turn help other people. She says, “I hope it’s like we throw a stone into the water and the circles keep expanding.” WATCH ALL THE TRAILERS ONLINE www.festivalmedia.org THE BEST BUDDHIST CINEMA ON DVD Jakusho Kwong, Abbot Soto Zen Lineage of Shunryu Suzuki-roshi resident training monthly sesshins guest resident practice solo retreats workshops daily meditation rural country setting Genjo-ji 6367 Sonoma Mountain Road Santa Rosa, CA 95404 707.545.8105 firstname.lastname@example.org www.smzc.net SONOMA MOUNTAIN ZEN CENTER helenKellerInternatIonal
