Donations & Offerings:
Traditionally Buddhist teachings are given free of charge because they are considered priceless – nobody can place a fee on something that brings complete liberation from suffering. Not charging for teachings is also done with the motivation of making the Dharma accessible to everyone, so that nobody is excluded from attending due to lack of funds.
In the Buddhist tradition, however, there is also the practice of generosity by making monetary offerings for Dharma teachings. This expression of generosity, referred to by the Sanskrit term ‘Dana’, is not payment for services rendered; rather it is an offering given freely from the heart in appreciation of the Dharma. It is a gift that supports not only the teachers and the wider Dharma community, but also one’s own practice.
We request a donation per event/venue to cover expense of travel, lodgings, meals etc. We suggest a $20 donation. Whatever donation works for you is appreciated.
Offerings,Dana, are handed to the teacher in a white envelope after the teaching. You will notice a line forming. We supply white envelopes.
