The one you Feed One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority. The other is Good.

Dharma in Action – ASC’s 1st Charity event!

This year during our AGM, we said that one of the things we wanted to do this year was to put what we learn into practice.  So with the teaching of Generosity in mind, we checked out a few options for us to put this virtue into practice and we chose to support the Children’s Wishing Well.
