For Buddhist Action Month 2016 we asked our friends from around the world to say what the Bodhisattva Ideal means to them…

Dayasara’s talk at his local Buddhist Centre evokes the case of a friend in need of the support of his community. It’s a great way to introduce the idea of more formal Buddhist care projects as part of the fabric of our idea of Buddhist sangha - and an active, practical, everyday way to practise the Bodhisattva Path.

The Abhayaratna Trust's picture

Thank you for this talk Dayasara, the idea of care-related groups forming around local centres is great, and it would be wonderful to see something along these lines emerging. As part of out aims at The Abhayaratna Trust we are keen to help sangha projects such as this get off the ground, so if anybody has a project in mind please get in touch to see if we can help -  it may be that we can provide funding for a feasibility study, for example.
