Gift Aid: I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
Gift Aid: Giving extra via Gift Aid is for residents of the UK only or those who pay tax in the UK.
A poetic and uncompromising talk on the value of the Dharma jewel given on the Triratna International Gathering at Adhisthana, 26 August 2017
There’s a transcript of the talk at https://thebuddhistcentre.com/system/files/groups/files/everything_of_wo…
What a beautiful talk! Thank you very much. This talk was the third most wonderful experience i have had today. The first was listening and watching the Vienna Symphony Orchestra playing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with a 96 year old woman in my assisted living residence. She ,is one of the most beautiful women i have ever met. She turned to me after a period of silence and said: “We just had a beautiful experience, didn’t we?” The second was at supper when a new resident said (after her relation said that she had had a very sudden cerebral hemorrhage and one day she had been a successful young professional woman and in a moment she had become unable to communicate or walk) “Such is life” with a smile. And the close of my day sparkling with the Dharma jewel.May all beings benefit! Viriyagita
