Liberation Prison Project

We get a tremendous amount of mail from prisoners here at Tricycle, and we do our best to send them something in reply to their letters. Beth Phelan of the Vajrayana Institute in Sydney, Australia (guiding light behind the tremendous Happiness & Its Causes conferences) visited us today and, talking about last year's conference, mentioned the dynamic Buddhist nun the Venerable Robina Courtin and the incredible work she does on the Liberation Prison Project, which works with Buddhists in prisons around the world.

The U.S. has a prison problem. Check out this grim article about adolescents being condemned to life in prison and read the 2006 Amnesty International report on the U.S.

Also, what happened to Bush and the DL's photo op?
