Free Buddhist Audio Needs Supporting Friends

Free Buddhist Audio The team at Free Buddhist Audio are mid-stream in their 2010-11 Fundraising Campaign and need the support of the greater sangha in order to continue their valuable work providing free, easy access to our Triratna Archive of Buddhist audio and text.

The archives are growing every day with talks from all over the world! And there are lots of different ways to help, including becoming a Supporting Friend by donating and/or helping us to promote this valuable resource.

Become a Supporting Friend of FBA: Donate Today! We need 500 new friends giving £10/$15/€12 per month. Receiving regular donations amount each month we can have confidence that the sangha is behind us in our work and that our operating costs will be met, keeping this project alive and well for many years to come.

Free Buddhist Audio is a fantastic resource and I love it. I encourage anyone who wants to hear a bit (or a lot)of Dharma to tune in and download. Makes driving the car, catching the train or lying on the riverbank a whole new experience.
