Caring for Kamalashila

SUPPORT A WELL LOVED DHARMA TEACHER THROUGH ILL HEALTH

Kamalashila is a well-known Triratna Dharma teacher, living in West London. His health has taken a hit, with MS, chronic asthma and hypertension, reducing the time he can give to teaching – donations from which usually cover his living costs. Help us to raise £3500 to see him through the rest of this year, until he can teach again around the UK. Find out more at https://facebook.com/AbhayaratnaTrust
