What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I am writing to raise some money for a good old friend, Suchitta, because I’d really like to see her fulfil her dream of visiting the west coast of America which she had intended to do in 1978 but couldn’t due to her Mother’s ill health and has never managed to return since then. Please read what she says and then let’s collectively help Suchitta hug a redwood! Don’t delay, do it today! With love, Samata

Dear Friends,  

I have lived and worked at Taraloka now for ten years. The Trustees have recently introduced the possibility for Order Members here to take a sabbatical leave as part of our support package. I have put forward a proposal for myself to take 6 months (April to September) in 2019, to which they have agreed, and will give £1,000 towards, plus our ongoing monthly support.

I want to undertake a Mythic Journey. It pulls together some of the different strands of my life, my past, and who I am. The plan contains a number of different elements: a visit to Vancouver and a months solitary retreat; attending the chamber music festival in Banff - a long held dream for my musical self!; travelling down the west coast of America by train to San Francisco, including time with the giant redwood trees in the North; and a visit to New York City.

Back in the U.K., I plan to travel to see long standing friends whom I don’t see nearly often enough and those to whom I am Preceptor and Kalyana Mitra, in a much more relaxed and spacious way than life at Taraloka allows; and visit some Cathedrals not yet seen.

So it’s a journey of the inner life, cultural life, and connection. I have lived and worked for the Movement since 1976, and have few personal financial resources of my own. To make this happen I am looking to raise a further £2,000 by this October.

Can you help? Any contribution would be hugely appreciated and received with a full heart. 

with much metta and grateful thanks,
