A Peaceful Revolution


There are millions of Indian Buddhists, but many are oppressed by poverty and caste and most have little knowledge of what the Dhamma is or how to practice it. Inspired by Dr BR Ambedkar, they are hungry for spiritual transformation and social uplift, and desperate to find genuine and effective teachers and practice communities.

Since 1978 Triratna has trained hundreds of such men and women in the Dhamma to the point of ordination, and they in turn are bringing real change – social as well as personal – to thousands across the Indian subcontinent.

Over 1,200 mitras are currently training for ordination, but there are not enough Preceptors, Order members, structures and resources to support them. For example, the women’s wing has at its core just four Private Preceptors to support more than 800 women. The Indian ordination teams are now raising substantial funds locally in order to grow, but they still need our help.

How you can help

Please give what you can, ideally on a regular basis.

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 the Dhamma Revolution now and make that vision a reality.
