Fire-up the Dharma

$12,219 of $30,000 goal
Given by 42 generous donors in around 6 months

Help us install a new heating system at Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre so we can run retreats all year round.


At Sudarshanaloka Retreat Centre our busy retreat season is spring to autumn when the weather is warmer. Retreats in the winter, in our unheated house, are more challenging and mainly for the hardy. By installing a heating system we will be able to run retreats all year round, with cosy study spaces, warm dry bedrooms, and oodles of hot water.

When we ask our supporters and retreatants what we should improve about Sudarshanaloka this is the number one suggestion. Help us meet our fundraising goal so that we can be even more effective at helping people explore and deepen their Dharma practice - all year round.

About us

We are part of the International Triratna Buddhist Community, which includes the Wellington, Auckland, and Thames Buddhist Centres.

Use of funds

The money raised will go towards purchasing and installing a wood-fired central heating system with a wet-back for hot water and radiators in each room. Any extra money raised will go towards developing our fire-wood processing systems.
