Letters from a Tibetan Colony

In this moving piece from over a decade ago, Dr. Sriram Shamasunder, shares updates from a month working in a refugee community comprised mostly of Buddhist monks and nuns. He writes of the contrast between the deep care and concern that this community extends to all forms of life, and the apathy with which their own medical needs are handled by the government. His poignant piece is a reminder of the many gaps that exist in our world, and a tribute to the many unsung heroes who have dedicated their lives to trying to fill them.
