Help Bhikkhu Rahul Sankritayan in his Endeavor to Serve Have-Nots

Inspired by the teaching of Lord Buddha Rahul named after Mahapandit Rahul Sankritayan, left the world in his early twenties and came to Buddha-Gaya, a small village in north-east Indian state of Bihar where Lord Buddha attained his enlightment about 2550 years ago. Walking a long 1500 Kms. from his home town Jeypore, in the state of Orissa. On reaching Buddha-Gaya, he embraced Buddhism and ordained as monk under Late Venerable Dr.Dhammawansa Mahathera.

But the course of time, being touched by observing unspeakable misery (i.e. inhumane living conditions, illiteracy, poverty, maturation, absence of medical facilities etc.) of surrounding humanity is the true religion rather than keeping himself confined to religious rites and rituals. And improving the overall living conditions of those under privileged people living in around Buddha Gaya.

To accomplish his mission in the most organized way, he setup the “Vajra Bodhi Society” under the Societies Act of 1860. This is way Bhikkhu Rahul set out his journey to dedicate his life distressed humanity.
