POWER OF VOLUNTEERING
Meet volunteers from Bodhi Meditation Centers around the world. Bodhi Meditation, founded by spiritual leader Grandmaster JinBodhi, is a place of meditation, learning and spreading of health and happiness for life. You are welcome to join us.
One of the reasons I volunteer is because I once received help from relatives, friends and hospice to cope with stress and sickness in my family and I promised myself to give back and help others.
One of the benefits for me is that I nurture my body, mind and spirit when I volunteer for Bodhi Meditation. I have made new friends and meet people from all walks of life.
One thing I’ve learned through volunteering is that it gives my life meaning and purpose. I’ve learned about the power of compassion and the joy of helping just one person or a community.
Through volunteering I have met people from all backgrounds, with diverse life experiences and medical conditions. At first I greeted guests to Bodhi and connected with, and helped, some of them.
Three things I am grateful for:
Each breath I take; health and happiness, peace and love.
An active life with supportive family and friends.
To be a Bodhi Meditation member; learn about Buddhist philosophy; and last but not least, to volunteer.
One thing I am inspired by is Grandmaster JinBodhi’s commitment to help those who suffer and show them the way to happiness.
Right now my goals are:
To maintain good health.
To increase my meditation practice.
To be aware and live in the moment.

One of the reasons I volunteer is that both my husband and I are now retired and healthy and we do not want to sit at home. I had always told myself that when I retired, I would volunteer my time to help others.
One of the benefits for me is that I am making new friends.
One thing I’ve learned through volunteering is that it is immensely rewarding. I get a chance to help people from all walks of life and at the end of the day, I go home feeling good.
Through volunteering I have met many wonderful people with expertise from whom I am learning and bettering myself daily, so that I in turn can use that knowledge to help others.
Three things I’m grateful for are:
Health and energy to help others.
A husband who also enjoys volunteering.
A wonderful husband, children, their spouses, and many grandchildren.
One thing I am inspired by is the teachings of Grandmaster JinBodhi.
Right now, one of my goals in life is to stay healthy so that I can be a good wife, mother and grandmother.
