Please use this page to donate to The Samatha Trust, the National Samatha Association and the Samatha Centre, Greenstreete.
Founded in 1973, The Samatha Trust is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation which fosters practice and study in the Samatha-Vipassana tradition of Buddhist meditation; traditional techniques of self-cultivation leading to inner-strength, tranquility and knowledge. The meditation method has its origins in ancient India, but developed over recent centuries in Thailand and was brought to Britain in 1963. Local classes offering instruction in meditation are held in many parts of Britain. Other activities from time-to-time include: groups for experienced meditators and study groups working on aspects of Southern Buddhist (Theravada) theory, practice and texts; chanting; celebration of puja and occasional work relating to Mahayana and Western traditions. The Trust has three centres. A national centre in Wales and regional meditation centres in Manchester and Milton Keynes.
