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.

At the end of March, we launched our Karuna Covid-19 Emergency Appeal to provide emergency relief to people in India and Nepal affected by the devastating impacts of the Coronavirus crisis. 

The lockdown was announced on March 24th and within a few days our partners were alerting us to  a catastrophic economic crisis affecting an estimated 460 million migrant and casual labourers who depended on daily wages for subsistence and a massive movement of people as migrants tried to travel back to...

Coronavirus: An Urgent Karuna Appeal

By Padmadaka on Fri, 27 Mar, 2020 - 16:35

The spread of coronavirus represents the global health crisis of our time and, like you, I find myself having to manage an unprecedented and constantly changing situation.

Job insecurity, cancelled plans and, most importantly, concern about our loved ones and those with underlying health conditions means that we are all struggling. I sincerely hope that you are able to access the support you need to stay well and to protect yourself and others during this time. 

As I write, India and Nepal have gone...

Death Of Chatral Sangye Dorje

By Candradasa on Tue, 5 Jan, 2016 - 21:39

Chatral Sangye Dorje (also variously spelled Chetrul or Chetrul), the last surviving of Sangharakshita’s teachers, was born in 1913 and died on 31st December.

This is an excellent, at times very funny, introduction to him by Karunamati, who was fortunate enough to meet with him in Nepal as part of her medical work there with the Green Tara Trust

At the time this talk was given the great Tibetan Master - one of Sangharakshita’s eight main teachers - was 93 years old and...

Donations flood in for Nepal

By Munisha on Sat, 2 May, 2015 - 17:05

Donations to Green Tara Trust in Nepal are now well over GBP13,000 - not including the GBP5,000 donated by Karuna Trust. 

It’s not too late to give. Make a Buddha Day donation!

While Nepal’s government reports today that almost none of the aid pledged by foreign governments has arrived yet, it’s good to hear from Green Tara Trust that your money is already there and working.

Local worker Ram writes “First funds from donations are coming through, that will be used mainly for...

Le Népal

By Ujumani on Tue, 28 Apr, 2015 - 21:13

J’imagine que vous avez tous entendu parler du séisme au Népal, et de la situation difficile de centaine de milliers, voire de millions de gens là-bas. Peut-être voulez-vous faire quelque chose, mais vous ne savez pas trop quoi ni comment - aider financièrement, par exemple, mais qui et comment ?

J’ai reçu un email de Karunamati, une membre de l’Ordre qui travaille au Népal, pour le Green Tara Trust, une association dont elle est une des fondatrices, et qui aide...
