The Korean Seon (Zen) master and engaged Buddhist Venerable Pomnyun Sunim, founder and chairman of the international relief organization Join Together Society (JTS), led a delegation of JTS volunteers to India in September to visit Sujata Academy, a community school established by JTS in Dungheswari, Bihar.
Although the respected monk usually makes annual visits to Dungheswari, to engage with the volunteers and villagers and to review the progress of development activities, this occasion was the first time he had been able to travel there in more than two years because of pandemic-related restrictions. During his week-long visit, Ven. Pomnyun Sunim spent time with the staff of JTS India, and discussed the needs and requests of the local residents and of the children of Sujata Academy.
