The Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi, one of the most prominent American Buddhist voices, spoke to an intimate crowd of students and adults regarding global hunger at Hendricks Chapel on Monday.

Bodhi – a Brooklyn native – has been a Buddhist monk and scholar since the early ‘70s, and is the founder of Buddhist Global Relief (BGR), an organization that works to create “small-scale, durable and sustainable solutions to hunger by dealing with the problems of hunger at its roots.”

He was introduced to the crowd as a “shining example of Buddhist teaching.”
