General information

"Why in Sunderland?" Sunderland does need a Buddhist Centre. There has been no Buddhist monastery in Sunderland and the nearest one is approximately 30 miles away in Hexam. With great help from The Venerable Ashin Nandapala, Vivekarama Charity is established in Sunderland. It is going to be the first Buddhist Monastery founded in the city. In near future, depending on the fund, a property will be purchased and we hope to move in to the property by new year. Sunderland has a strong historical link with religion. Everybody who celebrates Christmas and Easter must know about the Venerable Bede. Without him, we could not have today calendar. Bede Writings on Calendar Sunderland University is one of the very few universities where Buddhist Studies can be learnt. Buddhist Studies in Sunderland University Saint Peter's Church in Sunderland is one of the best places in Britain to visit. One of the Best Places in Britain Bede From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Venerable Bede "Donation" Please follow the link to be a great supporter for Vivekarama http://www.vivekarama.org.uk/doku.php?id=donation We do deeply appretiate your support as we need more fund for our charity development.
