Situation

Working together as volunteers we have seen the benefits that come with working with the mind for the good of all. Developing personal inner strength and clarity puts one in the position to support others. We need a location where the public can find what we have to offer - methods which allow modern people to create space in their minds and in their lives, become self-reliant and have more meaningful, richer interactions with others. Over 100 friends are working together on this project, support it themselves and raise funds to enable the project. We are looking for a property that can be transformed into a Buddhist meditation centre that includes space for 20-50 people to live. No one is paid for any work, it all comes from surplus, it is much fun and has been successful in many other countries and capitals around the world. The property will cost in the region of £1-£2 million, will be renovated in part by our own skilled workers and will be financed through the donations of regular members and those living there. We would be happy to speak to any interested donors. Please see our websites to see what we are doing around the world. www.diamondway-buddhism.org/ www.dwbuk.org www.buddhismus-stiftung.de
