“The purpose of the Centre existing continually is to help sentient beings and what sentient beings need most is to be free from the oceans of suffering…. The only method to be free of suffering is the Dharma, the Buddha’s teachings. The Centres are for that. That is why the Centre is teaching Dharma, providing qualified teachers, translators, a place to practise, to hear the teachings and so many other things.
By helping the Centre, you are helping all sentient beings, because then people come to learn Dharma at the Centre, and to practise bodhichitta, as they do the practice for all sentient beings, to benefit all sentient beings. That is how the Centre benefits numberless beings.”
