For the past several years we had great times, meeting other compassionate Buddhists, like minded friends, and monastics from many different sanghas. Please join us again for the 2019 NYC Walk to Feed the Hungry organized by Buddhist Global Relief ("BGR").
BGR was formed by American Buddhist scholar-monk, Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, and his students in 2007 to help the needy.
