Seven DC Occupiers visited a Buddhist community in Maryland as part of Occupy Faith DC. Kunzang Palyul Choling (KPC) delivers food to the Occupy DC camps several times a week, motivated by their philosophy of service and socially engaged Buddhism.
April Parsons of McPherson Square said, “Going to KPC was such an enlightening experience.” She enjoyed the tour of the main building and prayer rooms: “As you walk inside you can feel such an intense beautiful energy. It’s like a feeling of purity. I felt connected to everything around me through an energy of love and peace.” She’d like to visit again when she gets the chance.
