  • Eleusis is a special place for those of us who are blessed with the fortitude of knowing David, as a teacher and a friend. He embodies the ideal of those who want to help others ...carrying a flash light to make the path easier to follow...and the wide scope of his words is now be reflected in so many places, beyond Eleusis....Global Sangha is the demonstration of the meaning of his life.Namo Amida Bu

Sometimes i think that I have been travelling all my life. This is somewhat true, both literally and metaphorically. The endless spiritual journey takes one to ever new domains of life-meaning, especially if one is willing to take the risks that pop up along the way.
