Support a new Buddhist Society in Finland!

Hi everyone! :wave::slight_smile:

We recently registered a new Buddhist Society in Finland, feel free to check it out: https://dhamma.fi

If you would like to help us get things off the ground consider donating to our fundraiser: https://gofund.me/850030ae

The main purpose of the above fundraiser is to cover some of the costs of our upcoming retreats. The secondary purpose is to cover some of the day-to-day costs of our newly found society.

Much metta,
Mikko

Congratulations!

I saw the video about how Birkin Monastery survives in the freezing weather. Arrow River and Tisarana are also examples of monastic life at -40 degrees.

If you know of someone who would like to work on translating more of the SuttaCentral.net interface into Suomi, please send me a DM.

We finally finished the senior monks quarters (previously known as the granny flat). There are two rooms free for lay guests next time you’re in town.

A message of support from Ajahn Brahmali! (And some nice Dhamma in there as well.)

Thank you for all the generous donations! Also, more monastic support coming our way, this time from Ven. Vimala. :pray: They tell a lovely story of meeting a Finnish monk many years ago and discussing the prospects of setting up something like this in Finland, with all the natural beauty around. And now years later it’s actually happening!

Lots of support already! Thank you everyone. We also got a message from our very own Ajahn Mudito, in Finnish! The video has English subtitles.
