Each month we’re going to bring you news from one of our amazing projects that you help make possible. So, for July, here’s a smasher – India Dhamma Trust’s Young People’s Projects:
In India engagement with Buddhism gives some of the most disadvantaged people in society an opportunity to transform their lives and their communities. Dedicated Ordination teams and Dhamma teachers help provide the conditions for thousands of people to practice Buddhism. An ageing Indian movement however is no longer attracting many young people into our Movement.
Young people in India want to choose a future full of meaning. But in an increasingly consumerist culture, many are still weighed down by poverty and lack of opportunity. India Dhamma Trust empowers young people to decide their own future, and to live lives full of metta, personal transformation and spiritual friendship.
Your gifts are helping young people go on retreats together and build a young people’s sangha in India that is connected with other young buddhists throughout the world.
