KPC Sangha Rescues Animals after Hurricane Katrina
For a group of Buddhist practitioners it was a way to live the path—on their feet—while trying to relieve the suffering of others.
"I just had to go. There wasn't any choice. I was compelled. I had been feeling so impotent watching all the disasters in the world... this was finally something I could do," recounted Dr. Pema Mallu, Buddhist nun from the Kunzang Palyul Chöling (KPC) sangha in Sedona, Arizona.
When asked why she decided to go, her response was typical of those in the sangha who headed to the Gulf Coast to rescue animals after hurricane Katrina hit. And to the person they have been changed forever.
