Donations flood in for Nepal

By Munisha on Sat, 2 May, 2015 - 17:05

Donations to Green Tara Trust in Nepal are now well over GBP13,000 - not including the GBP5,000 donated by Karuna Trust.

You do!

But, more helpfully…

BAM is an initiative of the Network of Buddhist Organisations UK (NBO), who have asked a small team of young Buddhists to provide central information online via the NBO website and a central BAM Facebook page.

Be a Shambhala warrior

By Munisha on Mon, 20 Apr, 2015 - 13:25

“Firmly establish your intention to live your life for the healing of the world. Be conscious of it, honour it, nurture it every day…”
