Some of our regular donors say why they give:

“I think we need to build the community we want to see. Providing dana (donations) is a perfect way to achieve that. It’s a way to give financial freedom to the centre to implement itself in the best way possible, to make sure other people can have such great experiences – experiences of the learning Dharma (Buddha’s teachings & practices). Giving is an opportunity to make Buddhism accessible for other people. I think the amount you give allows for certainty and structure for the way the centre can run, particularly by giving monthly. And Gift Aid is a very simple way to give extra to the centre that makes a difference.” Adam

“I give to the Buddhist Centre because I know that they give back an awful lot more, to me and to every other person who goes there, whether they attend regularly or just now and then. It’s not really possible to put a value on what the Centre provides; the friendships, the warm welcoming atmosphere, the teachers and, most importantly, the opportunities to discover the Buddhist teachings. I don’t think there is anywhere else like it in Bristol and I know whatever is happening out in the big, wide world, the Buddhist Centre has got my back. It’s a special place that we need to cherish look after.” Michael

“I give to the Centre for two reasons: primarily it is to sustain the existence of a place of peace and security and opportunity  to develop as people, in a world of threatening circumstances and constant challenge.  My other reason is that I can receive the benefits of the place and the people and the learning opportunities to enable me to thrive.”  Daman

“I am giving to the Buddhist Centre at this time as it is such a valuable and rich resource and opportunity to connect in these very challenging times. For my self I believe building community and nurturing friendships are such a lifeline. I have especially appreciated being a part of sangha circle, relating in a real way and attempting to go beyond those views that can so get in the way of ‘ true relating’.” Dharmamrta
