Patheos Blogger Erik Campano Talks to Sister Dhamma Vijaya of the Dhamma Moli Project

One of the great things about being a student on or faculty working for Antioch Education Abroad’s Buddhist Studies in India program — and I’ve been both — is that you get to know Sisters Molini and Dhamma Vijaya of the Dhamma Moli Project. They are two brilliant, spunky, funny, and wise nuns, and their project does a tremendous bit of good.

So I was thrilled to see “Sister D” interviewed by my Patheos blogging colleague Erik Campano at his spot here, Stories Untold. Do take a look!

    Thanks, Danny! Did you go over to Madagh University, where they studied? Really unique place: a Buddhist University with a broad curriculum.
    Your piece on sexual assault on Buddhism provides a very interesting alternate framework through which to try to understand Roman Catholic sexual abuse scandals, which we’ve been touching on over at Stories Untold. Perhaps these two traditions have something to learn from each other in how to confront the problem.
