Reaching out when help is most needed

The mind, the Buddha, living creatures - these are not three different things.
—Avatamasaka Sutra

A Buddhist congregation in Mission, British Columbia has sold its temple to raise money for Asia's tsunami victims.

Buddhist Abbot Thick Nguyen officially handed the Canadian Red Cross a cheque for $500,000.00 on Monday, representing the entire proceeds from the sale.

I am truly inspired.
