It’s your call to change self and world! June is Buddhist Action Month (BAM) and Triratna’s Karuna Trust is celebrating with a BAM telephone campaign, 5th June - 14th July. They’re looking for a team of 6 volunteers for 6 weeks who are willing to act to create social change. 
The closing date for application is 22nd May.

Karuna’s Nisha Mothilal writes: “Based in the Karuna office in North London, you’ll be calling our existing Karuna supporters to engage and inspire them further. As part of a team you will have good conditions to deepen your practice: meditation, Dharma study and other creative activities will help us connect with ourselves and our supporters.

Karuna is a successful Triratna Team Based Right Livelihood charity.  For nearly 40 years Triratna volunteers have raised money projects seeking to end caste-based discrimination, poverty and inequality in India and Nepal. We reach approximately 90,000 beneficiaries every year, focusing on education, dignified livelihood and gender equality; transforming communities and changing society.

We offer training and a generous support and retreat package so you won’t be out of pocket.

Liam Chai, one of our previous fundraisers, told us ‘It was a wonderful training ground to integrate meditation practice and life. To go from the Metta bhavana on a cushion to Metta bhavana on the phones is super.’

For an inside view of our previous campaigns see our fun and very informative videos beautifully made by Karuna by volunteers who were on the campaign.
