Find Joy and Meaning in Volunteering
Although we are currently “meeting” online and are searching for a new space for the center, there are still ways you can help out!
Odiyana Kadampa Buddhist Center is run entirely on volunteer efforts. Volunteering is a great way to share your talents and interests and to enjoy getting to know other members of the community. These efforts also help the center bring benefit to many others. No matter how small the task, no matter your age or skill level, your contribution of time is extremely meaningful and will help to bring classes, teachings and peace of mind to many people within and beyond Connecticut.
All the Kadampa Buddhist Centers around the world are non-profit, volunteer organizations that function to help the people of the local area to solve their daily problems through the practice of meditation which is gaining familiarity with positive, peaceful states of mind.
