Making a Donation to the Buddhist Recovery Network
“We practise kindness, generosity,
contentment, truthfulness, and mindfulness
because we believe in them,
because they bring us happiness,
and because they are a gift to the world.”
Vessantara, Tales of Freedom, Windhorse Publications
If you support our mission, please consider making a donation to the Buddhist Recovery Network. Any donation, irrespective of its size, would be enormously appreciated.
In Buddhism, as in the Twelve Steps, we recognise the positive effect generosity can have on ourselves. It is part of opening up and adopting a more relaxed, expansive, outward-facing perspective. Instead of being chained to our own woes and fears, our gaze shifts to a broader panorama: the larger, interdependent, interconnected world of which we are part, and which we can positively influence. We can manifest in action the compassion we feel for people, such as those who are hurt from the suffering caused by addictive behaviours. We can do this through an act of service, through an investment of time and/or money. This in turn positively impacts our own sense of purpose, becoming a bridge to a life that is “happy, joyous and free”.
In supporting the Buddhist Recovery Network you would be supporting such initiatives as this website, with its online resources and meeting register. You would be supporting events such as conferences and retreats. You would be supporting a Treatment Center the Network hopes to establish on the West Coast of the USA. You would be supporting an archive of literature and materials which is being held on the Network’s behalf at the University of Washington. These are only some of our current plans.
