This should be the last of the SJP video-poems that have been re-created as high definition videos. This one is actually one of my favorites because I believe that it captures the vision and mission of Saint Julian Press in promoting an interfaith dialogue.
I’d like to dedicate it to the people in Nepal who are suffering today, in recognition of Nepal being one of great eastern centers of Buddhist and Hindu spirituality.
"Saint Julian Press as a literary and educational organization embraces a vision to create a local and worldwide community, by engaging in a literary and artistic dialogue that promotes world peace, cultural conversations, and an interfaith awareness, appreciation, and acceptance.
In our mission as a new literary imprint we hope to identify, encourage, nurture, and share transformative literature and art of both past and living masters. While giving emerging artists, poets, and writers a place they may come home to and share their work.”
