At a time when many are confined to their homes most of the time, Kadampa centers around the world have emphasised reaching out to people and bringing the joy of Buddha's teachings and the peace of meditation directly into their homes through special online activity.
Just before the lock down, Guen Kelsang Lochani, the Resident Teacher of KMC Barcelona took part in a TV presentation about the importance of controlling the mind and reacting positively, especially through the practice of patience.
The show was screened this week and has received hundreds of appreciative comments and likes.
The day before, Guen Lochani took part in a YouTube panel with the same journalist, again to great acclaim.
