Marina Munjal of the Appalachian Dharma and Meditation Center
This week on Religion For Life my guest is Marina Munjal one of "the founding mothers" of the Appalachian Dharma and Meditation Center in Johnson City. She talks about the activities at the center, Buddhism, and the joy of meditation.
"Marina grew up in Ohio with a statue of the Buddha in the study and a church home at a Unitarian Fellowship. She is one of the “founding mothers” of the ADMC and began building Buddhist community in the Tri-cities when she helped initiate the Holston Valley Sangha in July of 2001. She has been active in the Buddhist prison ministry since 2003 at Lee County, Virginia Federal Prison, which has continued to the present time and has helped develop an extensive library of Buddhist books, recordings, and movies, now housed at ADMC. She also offers community outreach on the subject of Buddhism, and has presented to the Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church and Kingsport high school history classes."
