The Legacy of Giving
Helping Ensure the Lotus Realm Can Continue to Give the Gift of the Dharma
Padmaloka has been at the heart of the men's wing of the movement since 1976. Generations of practitioners have benefitted immensely from the unique conditions that we provide here.
Padmaloka's sole purpose is to give; to give the gift of the Dharma to as many men as possible so they can transform their lives in the light of the Buddha's realisation.
Padmaloka is the sum total of all the generosity that has gone into making it what it is today: People giving their skills and time to volunteer here, people sharing their financial resources through standing orders, one-off donations and leaving legacies in their wills.
Financially, Padmaloka is now entering uncertain times. Having decided to cancel all retreats until the end of August following from the UK government's advice, our finances will be affected significantly, losing around £112,000 of retreat income. As a result, much of what is done here will need to be scaled back for the time being, affecting our ability to communicate and practise the Dharma.
Retreat income is necessary for Padmaloka to be able to keep running and it is not yet known when we will be able to host retreats again.
Consequently, any donations made during this period are deeply appreciated and will make a big difference.
If you would like to help us then a big thank you for your kindness and generosity, you can do so by setting up a regular monthly payment or making a one-off donation by clicking on the Donate buttons on this page.
If you are a UK taxpayer, allowing Padmaloka to claim Gift Aid on any donations you make will increase their value by 25%. To do this, please complete the:
