A Buddhist Writer on Death Row

Painting by Michael Sawyer - Buddhist Priest

Jarvis Masters is no longer the angry youth he was when he first entered prison in 1981. He has educated himself and become a celebrated author, dedicating his talents to the promotion of non-violent solutions to conflict. He has a wide friendship circle of people who love and respect him and who are witness to his transformation. He has committed himself to a practice of Buddhist meditation and has taken vows of non-violence.
