Tonight the Amida Newcastle sangha listened to this talk - how you've changed, Modgala! It took Colin back to those early days when you were students together.
Modgala’s talk. Modgala describes how staying at Eleusis around the time that Amida Trust first formed changed her life direction as she found Amida’s light after living until that time believing in atheism. Modgala recites and discusses the life of no regrets. Upon returning from Eleusis Modgala found that her friends at home became distant to her due to her embrace of Buddhism and this also brought change to her work situation and marriage.
Since that time Modgala has worked for Amida Trust in Zambia, India and Sarajevo and increasingly became involved in interfaith work. In so doing she needed to go past fears that in earlier times constrained her.
