BUDDHIST GLOBAL RELIEF
The mission of Buddhist Global Relief (BGR) is to provide relief to the poor and needy throughout the world regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, or religion. Bearing in mind the Buddha’s statements that “hunger is the worst kind of illness” and “the gift of food is the gift of life,” BGR especially focuses on providing food aid to those afflicted by hunger and lack of food security. Its long-range goal, however, is to combat all the manifestations of poverty that detract from the inherent dignity of human life.

Donation Approved Letter for IBS // Update Aug.2011
Dear IBS Prison Program Supporters,The Chuckawalla State Prison has graciously grant approval to permit the distribution of all of our Buddhist practice materials including books, CD’s, DVD’s, statues of the Buddha, Gong, Dharma bell, etc, to the Buddhist follower inmates. For that, I would like to confer my sincere gratitude for all the prayers and support to allow this auspicious outcome to come into fruition in such an expeditious manner. Hundreds of our dharma inmates will greatly benefit by being able to learn about the teachings and striving for genuine repentance to acknowledge their past misdeeds in hopes of becoming better societal members. IBS is honored and extremely grateful to be able to provide all of the materials that are conducive to a diligent spiritual practice and livelihood.On behalf of all of the other prison Sanghas, I would like to once again express our utmost appreciation for your continual support and encouragement without which many of the results could not have happened. IBS also would also like to thank all the supporters in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, as well as those from different states in the US. As always, IBS vows to continue to do its very best to lead all the prison Sanghas on the path of Buddahood. May all sentient beings be blessed by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.Amitofo,

(IBS) has been doing prison visitation programs in California for many years. There are hundreds of inmates in the prisons willing to learn and practice the Buddha Dharma. IBS only visits once a month to help and offer the Dharma, but once a month is not sufficient to teach enough information about Buddhism for their daily practice. We did some research about their practices, and it brought us more insight about how to benefit the practitioners. They desperately need library materials.Therefore IBS trying to set up a library in each yard of different state prisons that will be beneficial for those practitioners. If you have any Buddhist books, CDs, DVDs or Buddhist magazines and would like to donate them for the prison library, please contact us.
Thank You,International Bodhisattva Sangha
