Lotus Asian Voices – No.1, January 2014


In our inaugural Lotus Asian Voices program we pay tribute to Vippassana Meditation master S.N Goenka, who died in September. We also talk to a Thai Vippassana Meditation master Acharavadee Wongsakon.

In an educational feature we profile Nava Nalanda Mahavihara university in Bihar, India, and in our social feature we look at gender equality and efforts to motivate Buddhist nuns to become social educators in Cambodia.

In our cultural segments we feature an orchestral piece from China that is used to invoke the deities, and from Sri Lanka we introduce ceremonial drumming.
