Preah Maha Ghosananda, “the Gandhi of Cambodia,” died on March 12, 2007, age 78. Rather than devoting himself to monastic scholarship, he built hut-temples in the refugee camps and handed out dog-eared photocopies of the Buddha’s Metta Sutta, or Words of Love: “With a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings: radiating love over the entire world, spreading upwards to the skies, and downwards to the depths.” (Ghosananda’s life story is as deeply moving as this passage from a yoga magazine article several years ago!!!)
