Foreword by our founder, Matthieu Ricard:
” The year 2013 was one of many challenges and successes. Our activities throughout the Himalayan region and the north of India have continued to blossom and a host of new and exciting projects were accomplished.
There is a Buddhist saying, “What is not done for others is note worth doing.” At Karuna-Shechen we share a common goal: to attend to the needs of others, alleviate their suffering, and try to bring them on the path to well-being.
