FutureDharma Fund Gratitude Report 2019/20

Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, FutureDharma is now the main way Triratna seeds and supports sanghas around the world. This report is about how those gifts helped thousands of people to transform their lives last year.

Of course this year everything changed. Humanity now needs the Three Jewels more than ever. But with all our centres and retreat centres closed or severely restricted there’s a real danger that we barely sustain our own practice and sanghas, let...

Triratna Thrive: How FutureDharma is responding to the Coronavirus

Working Together - FutureDharma and India Dhamma Trust

By Liz_Bassett on Thu, 16 Apr, 2020 - 12:06

We’ve got some exciting news to share. We’re going to be working a lot more closely with India Dhamma Trust. 

With the world in lockdown, no-one is unaffected. In India conditions are hard. Food is difficult to come by and expensive. Many people don’t have homes or sanitation. People that do have homes often live with many family members sharing a small space. There is mass migration with migrant workers returning to their home villages. The sangha in India are responding to the needs...

“More of the same, reaching more and more people.” Urgyen Sangharakshita

Speaking just a few months before he died, this was Sangharakshita’s ongoing vision for Triratna. FutureDharma exists to help make this beautifully simple vision a vibrant reality.

We set out in 2016 with nine Dharma Priorities, the blessing and support of the College of Public Preceptors, and the fervent belief that members of Triratna love our sangha and want to give other people the opportunity to benefit from it. From the get go we have supported...

The mystery of the red T shirts

By Munisha on Sun, 27 Aug, 2017 - 15:46

Taking and editing pictures throughout the International Gathering, I’ve gradually become aware of a certain redness growing all around me.

More and more people are wearing red T shirts.

More and more people are taking out monthly standing orders to the FutureDharma Fund.

And people who commit themselves to monthly giving to Triratna projects around the world in this way get a free red “Pass it on” T shirt! (See the pictures.)

In celebration of generosity (and in...
