Thrive Online Appeal

COVID-19 has changed everything, everywhere. Tragically, it’s amplifying isolation, anxiety, depression, addiction and domestic violence.

People need the Buddha’s vision of awareness, compassion, and wisdom, more than ever.

But we cannot pass it on as we have for 50 years; by gathering together for classes, retreats, puja, and friendship. And this means that we can’t collect dana in the usual way.

Our urban and retreat centres risk going under when government financial support ends, or – in countries like India – where it never started.

However, with the help of FutureDharma and India Dhamma Trust supporters, Triratna is continuing to thrive online and keep reaching out to a world in need.

To carry on, we need committed Triratna Buddhists like you to give, ideally monthly.


This year we asked you to help us raise £200,000 so that:

  • The Buddhist Centre Online team can keep offering international meditation, retreats, and inspiration
  • The International Council can keep coordinating our global response to the pandemic, and help struggling centres manage their finances and access government support
  • Ordination and youth teams in India, Australia and New Zealand can keep inspiring and training people online
  • The Sikkha Project can keep training us in sharing the Dharma effectively online
  • Windhorse Publications can keep giving away thousands of free Dharma ebooks

You responded – and together we reached our £200,000 target. But the world is still in the grips of this global pandemic, with many people still living under lockdown, and in isolation. They still need your help. Will you give a monthly gift so that together we can keep reaching out to a world in need?
