FutureDharma Fund and India Dhamma Trust are launching Triratna’s Thrive Online Appeal, and we need you to join us. 

Our world is in lockdown. COVID-19 is changing everything: nobody knows what our world will look like in a year’s time. For some, the challenge of lockdown is overwhelming, causing a tragic surge in depression, addictions, and domestic violence.

This distanced, suffering world needs the Three Jewels more than ever.

Deepening Dharma practice, building sangha, outreach to other people - all of these are happening in Mexico at the Cuernavaca Buddhist Centre thanks to gifts to FutureDharma Fund.
