After a very productive stay, Andre Garzia left for his long 2-day trip back to Niteroi, Brasil. Before leaving he had a chance to talk with Bodhinatha. Andre’s work is very much a result of Bodhinatha’s initiative to make all our publications more accessible and available for study.

Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within.
