TIRATANALOKA [UNLIMITED]: Breaking News

By Subhadramati on Wed, 22 Nov, 2023 - 15:59

I was absolutely astounded by Karunadhi’s phone-call telling me that the Windhorse Trust was giving Tiratanaloka Unlimited half-a-million pounds! She had to say it twice before it sank in. Then I burst into tears of our gratitude. What an affirmation to all of us - to all of you who believe so deeply in this project. And it’s a massive leap forward for our fundraising. This brings our new total to over one million pounds, which means we’re...

A Fundraiser for Vancouver Buddhist Centre

By Centre Team on Fri, 25 Nov, 2022 - 14:22

Vancouver Buddhist Centre has been dependent on the generosity of its pledgers for many years. Sadly, it was financially impossible to keep the doors open during the pandemic. Placing all their belongings in storage and letting go of the physical centre. Losing many of their pledgers, as well as, income from classes and retreats in the process.

“For my oh-so 6th decade birthday, I want to raise $1000 for every year I have completed on this planet. This amount will

Dharmabyte: The Altruistic Aspect of the Bodhisattva

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 12 Jul, 2021 - 06:00

What’s in it for me? Our natural human tendency is to take, to grasp, to cling. If you can give though, there is hope, spiritually speaking. Generosity is an attitude of heart and of mind, an attitude of one’s whole being.

Sangharakshita describes the altruistic aspect of the Bodhisattva and the reconciliation of the apparent antithesis between the interests of others and of self by practising the first two of the six Perfections: dana (giving) and shila (ethics or ‘uprightness’).

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 8 Jul, 2021 - 06:00

Donation to the Buddhist Centre Online

By Caroline I P on Wed, 13 May, 2020 - 17:08

Since Adhisthana closed, we have been cancelling retreats and refunding those booked on a rolling basis. When contacting people we have also been inviting them to donate their deposit (or more), to be distributed to those Triratna centres and organisations that will need additional help with funding during these uncertain times.

There has been a massive outpouring of generosity from people, and you can see some of the team talking about this in more detail in one of our blog post ‘...
