Make a promise today for a brighter tomorrow...

What could you offer to do to help raise funds for these two important causes?

Tiratnaloka [Un]limited is raising funds to address the historic lack of ordination retreat facilities which makes it impossible for women to progress to ordination at the same rate that men can.

Ipswich Buddhist Centre 'Be ready' Fund

Over the last 30 years, Ipswich Buddhist Centre has grown from nothing to a thriving spiritual community with its own base and a strong team of experienced practitioners. This has come about through the selfless efforts of many people taking many tiny steps and occassionally some much bigger strides.

Now every week, new people arrive at our door. Some come once and never return but many stay to enrich their lives through friendship and the Buddha’s teachings. Through meditation, ethics and wisdom they make lasting improvements to their lives and the lives of people around them.

It will soon be time to again take some bigger strides to help our Centre benefit yet more people. Our ‘Be ready’ fund is designed to ensure that we can take advantage when the right opportunities arise. Your contributions will help this work to continue and to grow.

Please help us make the auction as successful as possible by offering a promise for auction. 

Any small or large service that you can offer for auction will be welcome such as  ‘A ride in my vintage motorcar’, ‘A beauty makeover’, ‘Half a day’s decorating’, ‘I’ll write a specially commissioned poem’. 

Just let your imagination go and think about what you could offer! Remember we need little promises as well as big ones so that everybody can participate.

Please submit your Promise by 28th April (sooner would be better). We need a 40 to 80 word description and an image/photo to illustrate it (we can help with an image if you get stuck).

If you think it helpful, you are welcome to suggest a guide price that will be published, and if you like, you can set a reserve price that will not be published but might save you having to do a day’s hard labour for only £20 raised. Please note that if we have too many similar lots we may have to ask you to revise your promise.

Please send your 40-80 words + image to as soon as possible and definitely by 26th April.

If you would like to offer entertainment over Zoom as part of the Auction evening, (the better the evening the more we raise), please contact Mosaic or Irene directly or using the above email address.
