From Mauricio

I have been studying Buddhism for 25 years and also teaching it in my country Colombia for several years. When I read the words of Lama Yeshe about Universal Education, a new way to teach the Dharma going beyond religious language and closer to scientific research, for the first time, I felt that there was something very important in Lama’s vision but I didn’t know how to make it a reality. Now, thanks to the FDCW, especially through the Building Balance Empathy (BBE) program, I have found a great way to facilitate the understanding and unfolding of compassion and wisdom in participants based on the development of the balanced empathy and discernment that BBE promotes. I am sure Universal Education will help me improve in both my roles as a teacher of Discovering Buddhism and as a facilitator of the BBE program.”
