Thank you: a message from SangharakshitaOn Fri, 18 September, 2015 - 09:17
“I would like to express my thanks to the one thousand and more donors who contributed to my 90th birthday gift of £135,000 [€184,300/ US$210,300/ INR12,981,000].
This gift will go towards the publication of my Complete Works, as well as towards the translation of some of those works into other languages.
Both projects are very dear to my heart, and it gives me great satisfaction to think that, thanks to the generosity of so many people, those projects are now being brought nearer to completion.
Amalavajra is Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly’s fundraiser. He adds:
“About half of this money came from about 25 individuals and centres giving £1,000-10,000 each.
The rest came in smaller donations from individuals, either directly or as part of collections; for example in chapters or study groups.
Contributions have come from all over the world and I am particularly pleased to say that almost £5,000 [INR481,000] came from India.
Thank you from me also!”
