ABOUT PRAJNA VIHAR SCHOOL
BODH GAYA, BIHAR, INDIA
We run an inter-faith school with Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Christian and secular teachers and pupils. Our school includes mindfulness, yoga, dance, the arts, creative expression, environmental awareness and community/friendship building.
The head of our school is a Roman Catholic nun.
Cost per child for a year’s education is £60.00, $80.00. €70.00 $A100 and Israeli 280.00 shekels. The cost per child covers tuition, books and stationary supplies. All donations go to the school account.
Every January in the latter years of the 1980s, I gave a morning class, via a translator into Magadhi, the local language, to around 80 of the poorest children in the Thai Monastery, Bodh Gaya.
From these very modest beginnings, the school developed with the ongoing support of Rick Peterson from the USA, BDA in Brisbane, Australia and various Dharma friends worldwide to raise money for the school, as well as co-operation in the administration of the school.
We started in a room in a Buddhist monastery, then to a two room bamboo hut. We now have 650 pupils in the school receiving free education.
