Aryaloka is joining with other Triratna centers and groups to celebrate Buddhist Action Month in June. Aryaloka is sponsoring several collective actions that everyone is welcome to join in on.

Schedule of events

Opening Ritual ~ June 7, 7 pm

Dedicate your actions during BAM for the benefit of all beings. We’ll kick off our Buddhist Action Month with a short ritual at the beginning of Friends Night.

Vegan Pot Luck and Recipe share ~ June 7, 5:30 PM

Bring your favorite meat and dairy free dish and one print out of the recipe. No need to make copies of the recipe! Write it all on one page of paper and we can photograph it with our phones or cameras. We’ll also post pictures of the recipes on the bulletin board in the hall and various social media sites if you are unable to take your own pictures.

Beach Clean Up ~ June 11, 10:30 AM, Jenness Beach, Rye, NH

Join your sangha friends and the Blue Ocean Society in cleaning up a portion of the seacoast. The Blue Ocean Society provides all the supplies; we just need to show up and join in. These beach clean ups are held rain or shine. If it is a nice day parking may be difficult so it’s advised to arrive early. Aryaloka is closed for a private function on June 11, so if you carpool to the beach, please do not use Aryaloka as a meeting spot.

Amnesty International letter writing ~ June 30, 12 – 2 pm

Write letters in support of prisoners of conscience worldwide. We’ll provide the information and materials. Feel free to bring food and eat lunch while you write your letters.

Special collections

End 68 Hours of Hunger: End 68 Hours of Hunger provides food for children during school breaks for children whose main secure food source is their school breakfasts and lunch. These donations will go directly to families in Newmarket who struggle to provide adequate food during weekends and school vacations.

NH Prison sanghas: The NH state prisons in Concord and Berlin have Buddhist sanghas who appreciate donations of new or gently used Dharma books and magazines for their growing Buddhist libraries.

All donations can be placed in the labelled boxes in the Aryaloka entryway.
