Buddhism and the Artist

Kelsang Donsang, Resident Teacher of the Kuluta Buddhist Centre

Is Buddhism a contradiction for an artist….a somewhat tongue-in-cheek comment. Interviewed Kelsang Donsang, a Buddhist monk, today for a column I’m writing on  the Kuluta Buddhist Centre. The artist is so often conflicted, always in process of exploring, aiming for the balance but never quite at that perfect moment/space. Yet Buddhism is that moment. I felt such peace sitting in the meditation room of the Kuluta Buddhist Centre. Calm. Just the two of us chatting. It’s so easy to vote for world peace when sitting in such an environment. Perhaps one should have to be Buddhist to serve as a politician??? No bullshite. Serenely seeking the truth. Wouldn’t that throw politics flat on its inglorious arse?! Looking forward to writing this article over the next few days.
