Speaking about the genesis behind the magazine, Nidhi Kundra, Editor-in-Chief of WisdomWinds say:
“Buddhism typically defines enlightenment as a journey of understanding and mastering our true self. The eternal teachings of Buddha, which are relevant for all generations, have been compiled and curated in printed format in WisdomWinds magazine. Considering all of us as Buddhas, WisdomWinds magazine has a vision to spread Buddha’s words through his teachings, sites and articles. It is our endeavour to proliferate the infinite Buddha wisdom, courage and compassion that runs as a power house inside each and every sentient being.”
