Karuna exists to end caste-based discrimination, poverty and inequality in India and Nepal. Kusaladevi writes about her experience working for Karuna: ”It’s hard to summarise my time working at Karuna. It was such a significant part of my life for around 8 years, coinciding with my ordination process and it feels hard to separate the two out. I feel so fortunate to have worked for a charity that combined my interest in International Development with the Dharma.
Karuna is looking for regional door-to-door fundraisers in the major towns and cities in the UK. Maybe you’ve participated in a Karuna appeal and are looking for meaningful work that promotes engaged buddhist values?
Regional door-to-door fundraisers work 4 evenings a week (£24,000 PA on target earnings).
If you are interested in working for a team-based right livelihood from your home town please do get in touch with sanghanath [at] karuna.org

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.”
