Dānanandi Sangha

To thank and honour those who choose to make regular monthly contributions to our beloved Dharma centre, we have created the Dānanandi Sangha ‘the community that delights in giving’.

All donations help keep us awake to the reality of our interdependence and we greatly appreciate each contribution we receive. However, regular monthly donations are especially helpful in sustaining our retreat centre by providing predictable income.

Delight is indeed the true spirit of offering Dana, and, as the great Buddhist scholar and monk Bhikkhu Bodhi highlights, Dana is “universally recognized as one of the most basic human virtues, a quality that testifies to the depth of one’s humanity and one’s capacity for self-transcendence”.

Access to our online retreats

​In recognition of their monthly support, Dānanandi Sangha donors are able to access our online retreats at the £0 Dānanandi Sangha rate.

"I would like to Gift Aid any donations I make to Gaia House Trust Ltd. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference."
