About the Trust

The Urgyen Sangharakshita Trust exists to share the life and work of Sangharakshita with the world.

Prior to 2021, the Trust was known as the ‘Uddiyana Trust’, and was responsible for Sangharakshita's care in his old age until his death in 2018. Read more about these activities in Uddiyana's annual reports.

Like many Triratna charities, our team operates on a ‘Give what you can, take what you need’ basis. Most people listed above give their time freely out of devotion to our teacher, Urgyen Sangharakshita, while a few are paid some basic living costs (support) for the days they work for the Trust. No-one is currently working full-time for the Trust.

The ongoing costs of running the Trust are funded by your donations.
