"Help Us Create a Peaceful Haven: Support Our Buddhist Forest Monastery Project in Collaboration with Rideekanda Forest Monastery"

Greetings, compassionate souls,

I am Shrima (CEO of the Metta Australia Incorporation), and I am reaching out to you today with a profound and heartfelt purpose. I invite you to join me on a journey of compassion and enlightenment, a journey that holds deep personal significance and the promise of creating a haven of peace and growth. This endeavor is in collaboration with Metta Australia Incorporation, a charity organization dedicated to promoting Buddhism worldwide.

Why We're Fundraising:
Together with Metta Australia Incorporation, we are passionate about fostering inner peace, spiritual growth, and the teachings of Buddhism. It is our shared aspiration to bring this vision to life through the establishment of a Buddhist Forest Monastery, a place where seekers and devotees can find solace and enlightenment. This endeavor is not just a dream; it's a calling, a mission to create a sanctuary that resonates with the very essence of our being.

Why It's Important to Us:
This project is a testament to our unwavering belief in the power of mindfulness, meditation, and the teachings of the Buddha to transform lives. It is our collective conviction that, in the heart of nature, one can find the serenity and wisdom needed for profound personal growth. This endeavor represents our deep commitment to helping individuals discover their inner selves, fostering peace and harmony in our often turbulent world.

How the Funds Will Be Used:
Your generous contributions will play a pivotal role in bringing this dream to fruition. The funds raised will be used in several key ways:

* Land Acquisition: We will secure a pristine piece of land, ideally suited to our vision, where the monastery will be nestled amid the tranquil beauty of nature.

* Monastery Construction: The funds will be channelled into constructing a place of worship, meditation, and reflection. This will be a physical manifestation of our shared commitment to spiritual growth and connection with the natural world.

* Meditation Retreats: We will organize meditation retreats, inviting devoted practitioners and seekers from all walks of life to experience the transformative power of mindfulness and self-discovery.

* Community Space: The monastery will also serve as a welcoming space for the Sangha community, a place for communal gatherings, support, and sharing in the journey of spirituality.

In essence, your support will be the cornerstone upon which this sanctuary of inner peace and enlightenment is built. And we are in collaboration with Rideekanda Forest Monastery (, a Buddhist monastery located in Sri Lanka, dedicated to spreading the teachings of Buddhism worldwide. Together, we will make this vision a reality, impacting countless lives seeking solace and growth.

Join us on this transformative journey, as we embark on this profound endeavor to create a Buddhist Forest Monastery that will inspire and nurture the souls of many. Your contribution will help us make the world a more peaceful place, one meditation at a time.

Thank you for considering this noble cause and for being a part of this extraordinary journey.

With gratitude and mettā,

Mrs. Lumbini Rupasinghe
