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.

The problem is that our centres are closed. The core of what Triratna has offered the...

Triratna Thrive: How FutureDharma is responding to the Coronavirus

FutureDharma exists to enable an abundantly funded, effective and well-resourced Triratna community that can respond to a suffering world and provide a progressive pathway to liberation.

The established purpose of FutureDharma is to seed and support Triratna Sanghas around the world, funding Dharma projects which promote unity, depth and breadth internationally, especially new projects which are bold and innovative.

We’ve got some exciting news to share. We’re going to be working a lot more closely with India Dhamma Trust. 

With the world in lockdown, no-one is unaffected. In India conditions are hard. Food is difficult to come by and expensive. Many people don’t have homes or sanitation. People that do have homes often live with many family members sharing a small space. There is mass migration with migrant workers returning to their home villages. The sangha in India are responding to the needs...

Too many people in the night in the rain: Impressions from Venezuela

Tue, 25 Jun, 2019 - 18:05

In October 2018 Saraha paid a visit to Venezuela, part funded by Future Dharma, to support the sangha and Vajranatha, who is the only Order member in the whole of Venezuela. Saraha writes a full account of his time there and gives us some impressions of what it is like for those living and practising the Dharma in the midst of a volatile political landscape.

Thank you to Jai

Jai Teather will be leaving the FutureDharma team, and the Adhisthana community, at the beginning of March and as Director I want to thank him, on behalf of the team and trustees, for all that he has contributed to the project. All of us involved in FutureDharma are inspired by and love the project but, as a project in its infancy, the work can be demanding; Jai has been with FutureDharma for a year but, after careful consideration...
