In the way of the Troubadour, Washuntara is a life crafter. As a Zen Buddhist he reminds us to remember who we are, to wake up and reclaim the happiness and compassion in our lives. As he says, “You don’t really grow up, until you’ve had your first good belly laugh at yourself.”
As a recent surviver of late stage throat cancer, he knows only to well that the heartfelt songs and carefully spoken words of his ministry, come from and for his real heroes: “ Those that have known despair and chosen to rise above it.”
The raw humanness of Washuntara finds him shining his light (and laughter) into many of the worlds darker corners. Turning to the similarities in our many different streams of faith and ordinary goodness in us all, his uncomplicated Buddhist teachings can bring about, with practice, a lasting transformation. Across the street, across the planet, he puts matters of joy, understanding, compassion, inclusiveness and love to work. His swan song and simple message … You Can’t Stop Love
