Story

Tiratanaloka Unlimited: A season of fundraising at the LBC from

**April 8th to May 26th**

Fill the world with more compassion and more wisdom! Join in this season of fundraising to support a new Tiratanaloka retreat centre and help ordain 1000s more women.

Give £1000 by clicking the Give Now button...and with matched funding from the LBC turn it into £2,000!

Currently, over 1000 women worldwide* are training for ordination. 10% of these are connected to the LBC. However, Tiratanaloka, the retreat centre for ordination training, is too small. Many of these women have the energy and inspiration, but due to the lack of space, the brakes are put on their progress and momentum creating a bottleneck.

With your help, we can change this. We want the ordination journey for women to feel unlimited. The ordination of more women will benefit them and countless others as their commitment and the Buddha’s vision ripples out into the world.

Fundraising together for a new centre

Tiratanaloka Unlimited is a campaign to establish a new, larger women’s retreat centre that can run retreats for at least 60 people and house a community of 12.

Women training for ordination are ready, the Tiratanaloka team is ready, we now need everyone’s help to raise enough funds to make this a reality.

The LBC is passionate about supporting Tiratanaloka and from 8th April to 26th May we’re hosting Sangha-led events for Tiratanaloka Unlimited. It will start with a special evening with Maitreyabandhu and Subhadramati, and end on Buddha Day, with talks from Suryagupta and Subhuti. Throughout there will be opportunities to get involved and to give.

Whatever is raised during this season, the LBC will match-fund up to £50,000! This means that if you give £1000, LBC will match it to give another £1000, creating a £2000 donation. This an exciting opportunity to contribute to a project that will benefit others for decades to come.
