“We must take what we learn from our meditation practice in to our life so that our life is our practice.”
Bhante Sujatha calls charitable or humanitarian work “Love In Action.” The work is not about solving every problem on earth, but simply doing what you can, while you can, when your heart leads you to act.
Everyday in our lives we “give” something. Therefore, giving becomes a part of our practice. Our best intentions can go in the wrong direction. Individuals who are motivated to practice generosity must be diligent to understand if they are motivated with right intention and, when a goal is undertaken, to work at it with right effort and mindfulness.
Bhante Sujatha has led programs and initiatives since his youth while training as a Buddhist monk. He has a lifetime of experience in these efforts and has earned the trust and respect of donors and philanthropists around the globe.
On this page we present a few of Bhante’s social work programs – past, present, and future. We would love to hear your ideas! We hope that while you are visiting these pages you will get some ideas for your own community or decide to get involved in a program with Bhante. You might even come up with a great new project.
