Stopping at a roadside service station during a journey many years ago, Sangharakshita surprised his companions by throwing a coin into the wishing well outside. “Did you wish for Enlightenment?” they joked. “No”, he answered, “Enlightenment is guaranteed if you make the effort. I wished for money. With money you can start Buddhist centres.”

Triratna’s FutureDharma Fund, aiming to raise £3-5 million and £500K in annual income by 2021, launched last Saturday at the Combined Order Convention at Wymondham in...

2015 breaks Karuna's fundraising records

Posted by Munisha to Triratna News on Wed, 10 Feb, 2016 - 12:21

Thanks to its “amazing” Buddhist volunteer fundraisers, in 2015 Triratna’s Karuna Trust had the best fundraising year in its 35-year history.

Karuna’s head of fundraising, Steven Murdoch, writes: “In a year when the UK charity sector was widely criticised for some dubious fundraising practices, Karuna had its most successful fundraising season ever.
