Since 1978 Triratna has trained hundreds of such men and women in the Dhamma to the point of Ordination and right now there are currently over 1600 Indian Mitras who are in training for Ordination who need ongoing support to prepare them to join the Indian Order.
These Mitra’s are thirsty for good and effective conditions to deepen their Going for Refuge, and desperate for effective Kalyana Mitrata. Unfortunately they are held back because there are not the Preceptors, Order members, structures and resources to meet this ever-increasing need. For example - The women’s wing has at its core 4 Private preceptors who support more than 800 women. The Public Preceptors and members of the Men and Women’s ordination teams rely on financial support from the India Dhamma Trust and the movement to carry out their work.
How Can I help?
We’re aiming to raise money from the Triratna community world-wide to support some of our most important Dhamma work in India: the men’s and women’s Ordination Teams, plus the Indian Mitra Convenors.
Our brothers and sisters in India need our help to enable them to bring about the historic revival of Buddhism in the land of the Buddha’s birth.
Please join us in making our vision a reality. Please set up a regular gift on our donate page. Your generosity will give some of the most disadvantaged people in India access to the tools to transform their lives and communities.
