  • In honour and celebration of Grandmaster JinBodhi’s 30-year Dharma Teaching anniversary, both Bodhi Meditation and Grandmaster JinBodhi have each made a donation of $200,000 for a total of $400,000 to Richmond Hospital Foundation in hopes to create a meaningful impact in Richmond health care on Bodhi Meditation Day. Bodhi Mediation Day is observed on August 3rd, designated by the municipal government of Richmond and the provincial government of British Columbia, to celebrate Bodhi Mediation’s contributions to the community.

    An international meditation organization focused on mind-body health, Bodhi Meditation welcomes people of all religion, language, and race and aspires to circulate health and happiness through guided visualization-meditation. Grandmaster JinBodhi believes that the mind and body work hand-in-hand. “Meditation promotes mental well-being which then translates into physical well-being. We believe in the power of inner healing but recognize that the best outcome includes the support of an equally robust health care system,” says Grandmaster JinBodhi “As a resident of Richmond, it is my honour and pleasure to be able to contribute to the community. In the face of such a devastating pandemic, it is a brave and remarkable act of all medical workers to serve the public on the frontlines. We admire them and are very moved. Thank you to all the medical workers for their hard work and dedication. This donation is a token of our appreciation, support, and respect for all medical workers.”

    Bodhi Meditation has been a distinguished devotee to health care in Richmond for years. In 2019, they made a $100,000 gift in support of the ACT NOW campaign to help fund the new Yurkovich Family Pavilion at Richmond Hospital.

    “The Bodhi Meditation centre opened in Richmond over 15 years ago and has since promoted harmony and compassion spanning across the entire community of Richmond and beyond,” says Candace Hernandez, Vice President of Richmond Hospital Foundation. “Bodhi Meditation’s generous donation will further encourage wellness and help provide enhanced health care to the people of Richmond. We are so thankful for this partnership in building a better and healthier future.”
