Bodhisattva Demonstrators, Bodhisattva Infiltrators
Whether explicitly designed to highlight spiritual perspectives, like last week’s Stop the Frack Attack demonstration in Washington, DC, or simply exemplifying deep courage and compassion, like immigration rights activists who infiltrated detention centers and risked deportation to expose wrongdoing, the work of the bodhisattva always has heart.
Later this year and next, we’ll be offering some more structured resources and courses around spiritual activism and the path of the bodhisattva. But for now, I’m curious to know from you: how do you define spiritual activism? Do you see it happening in your part of the world? What role, if any, do you think it ought to play?
