May All Beings… Social Justice Portraits from Buddhist Leaders

May All Beings… Social Justice Portraits from Buddhist Leaders

When Buddhist Peace Fellowship went to the White House earlier this year, Co-Director Katie Loncke and Board Member Sierra Pickett gave a presentation and, outside the conference, brought hand-painted Buddhist social justice banners. But that’s not all.

Also separate from the conference (a little bonus activity, if you will), we brought materials for a little DIO (Do It Ourselves) portrait project.

We asked participants at the first U.S. Buddhist Delegation to the White House to fill-in-the-blank on one of three portrait cards.

  • May All Beings Enjoy …

  • May All Beings Be Free From …

  • The Karma of  …  Is Heavy

Here’s what happened! (Click images to enlarge.)

We think it’s powerful to see Buddhist leaders taking a public stance on the social and environmental issues they care about, as well as expressing goodwill for the spiritual well-being of all.

Deep bows to Hozan Alan Senauke of Clear View Project for collaboration!

    Glad to see active movements among Buddhists/Buddhism followers. I would like to share a very good Buddha Series produced by an Indian, Mr Mody. It has been translated/dubbed in several languages already. I hope there is one in English. It is marvelous for learn and understanding Buddha’s teachings more easily and deeply.

    So inspiring to see that two of my teachers participated. I deeply appreciate Hozan Alan Senauke for his instrumental work also! I find much inspiration from him through his Clear View project. Thank you all for presenting this here. My 16 year old daughter made mention of this event in a school project and received lots of great feedback!

    Anyone know who is the nun in the first picture on the far right holding the sign “may all beings enjoy clean air”?
