Writing Padmaloka into your Will
Why put Padmaloka in your Will now?
At the moment of death, we might not have the chance to reflect over our lives, say the things we want to, or even give a gift to the people who have helped us so much in our dharma lives. But it is possible to carry on the Bodhisattva work – by writing a will and planning for your death - now.
Bequests from wills are making a difference to the Triratna movement right now, the rebuilding of Vajrasana, for example, was made possible by donations from wills. A bequest to Padmaloka in your will ensures the opportunity for others to live ‘the Holy Dharma’. Long after our death, we can continue to transform the lives of those so fortunate to have found the Three Jewels.
How to put Padmaloka in you Will
A form of words to include Padmaloka in your will may look like:
“I give free of taxes as a charitable bequest of (either a specific sum here or a proportion of the residuary estate) to ‘FWBO Surlingham’ UK registered charity 273850 to be used as to both capital and income for the general purposes of ‘FWBO Surlingham’. I direct that the receipt of the Finance Secretary for the time being or other duly authorised officer shall be a full discharge to my executors.”
It is worth considering giving a percentage of your estate rather than a fixed amount as this is often more than you think it might be and avoids giving less than you intended due to inflation over time.
For help with writing a Will you can contact Satyadasa at Greengate Wills for guidance or speak to your solicitor.
If you do decide to name Padmaloka in your will it would be really helpful for us if you let us know. You can do so by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
