New Books for the New Year

By Liz_Bassett on Tue, 3 Jan, 2017 - 14:36

Happy New Year! I’m busy getting back into work and writing thank you notes for pressies received over the festive period. The best presents you can get I reckon, are books.  And they’re also the best to give because they can change lives. That’s why FutureDharma Fund supports the Translation Project, which is producing high quality translations of Sangharakshita’s presentation of the Dharma.

By supporting translators working in a range of languages the Translations Project is helping make the Dharma available to more...

Recognise any of these lovely people?

By Liz_Bassett on Mon, 14 Nov, 2016 - 08:00

Recognise any of these Order members, Mitras or Friends?

Do they seem special or ordinary to you? Anything stand out?

They are all giving to FutureDharma Fund. Some of them give a monthly donation, some have given a larger one-off gift, made us a loan or put FutureDharma Fund in their Will. In a way, quite ordinary things to do. But also special, because all of our donors have thought carefully about what effect they want their money to have in the world.  

Who can...

Send us a FutureDharma postcard!

By Liz_Bassett on Mon, 31 Oct, 2016 - 09:00

At FutureDharma Fund we love getting post!  So when we were thinking of the best way of getting in touch with the lovely Triratna community the answer seemed obvious – a postcard.  Throughout the summer we’ve been sending out bundles of FutureDharma Fund postcards to Triratna centres and retreat centres across the world.  They carry a very simple message:

The world needs what you’ve been given.  Pass it on.

FutureDharma Fund is a way for all of us to play our part in taking Triratna...

Money Awakening Retreat

By Liz_Bassett on Fri, 15 Jul, 2016 - 14:54

In May Amalavajra ran a Money Awakening Retreat at Adhisthana.  Participants from the UK, Europe and Mexico spent a weekend together reflecting on their relationship with money.  Through meditation, puja and workshops they explored how we earn, spend, save and donate our money, and learnt how our relationship with money is part of our spiritual life.  Meditating on the Buddha Ratnasambhava, retreat participants were encouraged to focus on the 3rd and 2nd precepts: Live Simpler, Give More

The FutureDharma Fund is coming!
