Bhikkhu Bodhi is an American Buddhist monk, originally from New York City. In late 1972, he traveled to Sri Lanka, where he received monastic ordination. He lived for twenty-four years in Asia, primarily in Sri Lanka. He was the editor for the Buddhist Publication Society in Kandy from 1984 until 2002, and he has translated numerous texts from the Pali Canon into English, among them the Samyutta Nikaya (Connected Discourses of the Buddha). In 2008, he helped to establish Buddhist Global Relief, an organization dedicated to bringing about greater preparedness at the local level to meet disaster situations. He resides at Chuang Yen Monastery in upstate New York. For more information visit: www.bodhimonastery.net.

The Buddhist Global Relief Agency (BGRA) was organized to provide humanitarian services in a post-Asian Tsunami context. BGRA networks with Buddhist temples and the Buddhist laity nationally and internationally to be more effective in providing disaster relief. The IMSB Karuna Fund supports various Karuna Outreach projects. Currently, we contribute to the Prajna Vihar School in Bodh Gaya, India, and IMSB Retreat Scholarships.
