Chairs' Letter - April 2021

By Amrutdeep on Fri, 30 Apr, 2021 - 18:40

Dear Order Members and Friends,

I have asked each of my deputies to contribute to these letters, and it seemed appropriate that Amrutdeep would write this month, from India. Amrutdeep was ordained in 1992 and has been a Public Preceptor for eight years, and I’ve very much enjoyed and appreciated getting to know him as we work alongside each other in the College. He is thoughtful and wise, kindly and ethical, and tireless in his practice of the...

Coronavirus Appeal: A Message from the CEO of Karuna Trust

By Padmadaka on Thu, 22 Apr, 2021 - 11:58

As most of you know the situation in India is again becoming desperate. 

This second wave of COVID-19 is spreading faster; infection rates are more than double than at the previous peak and health facilities are being overwhelmed. Night curfews and local lockdowns are still paralysing many states, with devastating consequences for migrant workers. As before, it is the most vulnerable and marginalised people suffering most.

Urgent Appeal for 66 Order members in India

By Centre Team on Sat, 17 Apr, 2021 - 22:19

Dear Friends,

The second wave of covid is causing poverty, distress and death in India. Very sadly we have lost several members of the Order to covid in recent days. Currently 15 Order members are unwell with covid to the point of needing medicines and / or oxygen. With public health supplies running low, these things need to be paid for privately. We want to send £150 to each of these Order members to give them this ability.

Donate to the emergency appeal

International Women's Day 2021: Vidyavardhini

By Vidyavardhini on Mon, 8 Mar, 2021 - 12:42

I am Vidyavardhini, I live in Pune near Bhaja retreat centre (Maharashtra), India. I was ordained on 15th January 2017 at Bordharan retreat center, Nagpur. Mostly I travel all over India because I love traveling and meeting people, so I hardly stay at home. When I first contacted the sangha I decided to move to Maharashtra twelve years ago to understand and practice Buddhism from that time. It was clear that after some time, I had to go back to Bihar (because I am...
