This via Tricycle‘s Awake in the World blog: Chris Grosso, Spiritual Director of the interfaith center The Sanctuary at Shepardfields, has a substantial new interview with Jarvis Jay Masters, the Buddhist author and death row inmate, over at elephantjournal.com. Do take a look.
You can learn more about Jarvis and his case at www.freejarvis.org. His writings are also collected in the extraordinary book Finding Freedom: Writings from Death Row. Jarvis has said of himself, “Those who want to make sense of my life will see, through my writing, a human being who made mistakes. Maybe my writing will at least help them see me as someone who felt, loved, and cared, someone who wanted to know himself for who he was.”
