Fund Raising Appeal for the construction of the Bodhi Tree Vipassana Meditation Centre
Our good news is that after a prolonged process we have been granted permission by the local authority to build a retreat complex as a Vipassana Retreat Centre on 99 acres (36.91 hectares) at Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery!
Since 2006, having developing the infrastructure and a monastery base we are now going ahead with the construction of a purpose built retreat facilities for forty-four meditators. So far we have built all of the infrastructure on the west side of the retreat complex and the first building – a two bedroom accommodation unit with on suite for disabled and the elderly.
As a not-for-profit Buddhist charity, staffed by volunteers we offer our services free of charge. So we rely entirely on your generosity to fund this unique project.
Please join us and share in the benefits of making available the Buddha’s liberating teachings freely available to all.
