Dear Friends of Odiyana Kadampa Buddhist Center,

This has been an especially challenging year for many. Odiyana KBC has aspired to have classes available to our local community struggling with these unstable times. The Center’s mission is to provide opportunities for everyone to develop peaceful and loving minds through meditation classes on Kadampa Buddhism. We would like to thank you for all your support and for attending the online classes offered.

With the end of the year approaching, we hope you will consider including Odiyana Kadampa Buddhist Center with your holiday season giving.

The Center is a non-profit organization and we rely on your generosity. If you feel that Odiyana KBC has contributed to your life, and have a wish to help others also receive benefit, please consider making a donation. A gift of any size, no matter how small, helps Odiyana KBC’s mission to bring precious dharma teachings to as many people as possible in the CT area and beyond. This is such a kindness, especially during these challenging times.
