We fund Dhamma projects in India to help wisdom & compassion spread in India

Charity Registration No. 1040666


I am Varaprabha, an Order Member from Pune, India.  Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

For the last twenty-four years I have been performing cultural activities as a cultural activist. Recently I completed a Mime Arts course at Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar University, Aurangabad. I am thinking to make short Mime films, through which such messages will be delivered as, “be educated, be kind, be harmonious, be generous…” and so on. You can see one of them on YouTube - just search for 'Varaprabha'. 

Already I have been able to offer a Charlie Chaplin Mime on the theme of addiction for the children at the Mahavihara and also the Destitute Children’s Home in Pune, another, called ‘Charlie and the Thief’ at Latur, teaching the children the importance of earning their living by honest means. 

Also I was able to play an active part in the Film ‘Bodhisattva’, which among other things was advertising for TBMSG. Another Charlie Chaplin piece is in preparation, on the theme of ‘Charlie and the Dictator’.

My appeal is to do a month-long advanced training with Niranjana Goswami, the famous Indian mime artist.  Now that I have confidence in my ability to communicate with my audience, I want to develop my professional skills. This will make me far more effective in my work and my communication.  I request you to support me in my training.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Fwbo (Dhammaloka) will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 25% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
