A short poem from Rosemarie’s visit to India.

Describes Rosemarie’s experience in India—specifically, in Dharamsala, where she studied with Tibetan Buddhist lamas and met the Dalai Lama for the second time. She talks about what it was like to be an African American woman in India, and of similarities between the lessons she learned from the lamas and those she’d learned from her mother and from colleagues/mentors in the freedom movement.

A short collection of notes from Rosemarie’s time in India: partly quotations from the lamas’ speeches/lectures, and partly memories of her mother that surfaced while she was attending these talks.
