108 Ways of Looking at Death

Posted by Jai Teather on Tue, 13 Nov, 2018 - 15:10

In the wake of Bhante Sangharakshita’s poignant and mythical funeral, Adhisthana is slowly returning to normal, but of course, will never be the same.

We are continuing to raise money for the Completed Works, and a massive thank you to everyone who has given so far.

More than £5000 Dana was collected at the funeral, pushing the total to over £30,000, meaning we are a third of the way to our...

The New Dharma Revolution in Hungary

Posted by Jai Teather on Wed, 18 Jul, 2018 - 12:46

FutureDharma supporters have brought Roma Buddhists from Hungary together with those from Belgium, India and Holland. Metta Vihara Retreat Centre recently hosted a unique Bodhisattva Ideal retreat, connecting Sangha members from across the world.

Hungarian gypsies, known as the Roma community, have a deep connection with the Dalits of India. Both communities are segregated, unable to get access to education or employment, and are treated like lesser humans. Buddhist Romas are few and far between, isolated, and lacking a Sangha which makes...

Bhante blesses the FutureDharma Jambala rupa!

Posted by Amalavajra on Tue, 8 May, 2018 - 18:59

Today Bhante Sangharakshita blessed FutureDharma’s Jambala rupa, and wished our whole team every success in raising money for our movement’s projects.

He said something like, “Money is necessary for all activities in the world. In the right hands it can make such a difference. There can be hardly any better use for money than Dharma work”

We talked about US...

Your gifts are passing on the Dharma in Venezuela

Posted by Liz_Bassett on Wed, 28 Mar, 2018 - 15:24

If there’s no way people can travel to a retreat, then why not fly the retreat to them! 

Aryavacin (Nottingham, UK), Manjusiha (Padmaloka, UK), and Padmashalin (Valencia, Spain), have done just that.

The location? Merida, Venezuela.

The three friends landed last week and immediately began leading a valuable retreat programme.

The situation is tough in Merida. Vajranatha is the only Order member in the sangha, in fact in the whole of Venezuela. He’s been working heroically to keep Merida’s thriving sangha going.

Recent economic turmoil in Venezuela has...
