It is said that “true giving is true receiving.” When we give genuinely to support the basic needs of impoverished children, provide education that will open doors to fresh starts and new opportunities, make medical care accessible to the sick and elderly-this indeed is the very best gift we can to give ourselves.
Bodhi Seeds provides such opportunities by dedicating its resources to the support of monastics, students, and the elderly in the Himalayan regions of India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet.
It is only possible to accomplish these goals through your generosity and active interest. I would like to request your kind support of our efforts to relieve some of our world’s most fundamental sources of suffering. Through our mutual intention, may the pain of illness be relieved and may education open all eyes to the genuine wisdom world.”

About Bodhi Seeds:
Bodhi Seeds supports monasteries and lay communities with medical care, education, and other basic necessities of life.
Bodhi Seeds finds sponsors for the children whose Families are unable to send their children to School.
Thus far, Bodhi Seeds has provided resources in the form of supporting one community to set up and operate a medical clinic that serves monastic, women, men, children, and elderly in the surrounding community. It has also supported the monastics’ daily living personal needs including travel stipends for family visits. And, as already mentioned, it has located sponsors for children’s education.
Bodhi Seeds goal is to continue these endeavors, to equip the clinic to serve women’s needs, and to offer basic health education classes for the monastics to enable them to better serve the community as front line health care advocates and monitors for themselves and the community.
Bodhi Seeds was Dharma Eye’s Featured Organization of the Month in January 2015.
