Why support Clear Vision?


We're probably unique in the world: ordained Buddhists with video, photographic, online and educational skills, passionate about communicating Buddhist ethical and spiritual teachings and values. 
(Read more about our achievements)

Audio-visual, online and interactive media have the power to communicate in new and exciting ways, especially to young people. Our Buddhist resources for Religious Education in UK schools have been acclaimed as "setting standards for other faiths to follow".

But sharing Buddhist values costs money.

As a registered charity, we depend strongly on generosity; upon donations and grants from Buddhists and those who value our many years' work for Religious Education.
Income from sales of materials to schools is not enough to cover our costs, even though they are extremely modest.

With your help, there is so much more we could do.

Where your money will go


Our priorities today:

  • more free, online, interactive Buddhist materials for young people worldwide
  • developing our video-based resources for schools
  • expand our team of 2.2 people to produce more high-quality web-based resources
  • representation of a broader diversity of Buddhist traditions
  • (please see our wish-list for more info)

whilst continuing to:

  • make more archival material freely available online
  • record (and make available online) more video about our own Buddhist tradition, the Triratna Buddhist Order and Community

Our overheads are very low:

  • our staff draw very modest financial allowances, each according to need
  • our modest rent goes to a Buddhist landlord: the Manchester Buddhist Centre
