Humans of HDS

Bhante Kusala

"I have seen a divine spark in each human being that I’ve met at HDS. Each has their own values, theological understanding, and ways of connecting with their own spiritual network. Some people are more religious than others, but the more I’ve connected with people, the more they purify my inner being and my own understanding about Buddhist teachings."

—Bhante Kusala, MDiv ’17
