Benevolent Organisation for Development, Health & Insight (BODHI)

"Realising the interdependence of all beings is in our enlightened self-interest. If we don't work together to reduce the world's much-discussed problems, then who will? We try to utilise skillful means in helping sentient beings, in the developed as well as the developing world.

"BODHI, founded in 1989, is based in both the United States and Australia." [1]
