In the Buddhist tradition, teachings are offered free of charge, this is because the teachings from the Buddha are actually so valuable that no price could ever be attached to it. However, voluntary donations called dana are accepted. These voluntary contributions are not required nor expected, but available to those who wish to support the Sangha (monastic community), to preserve the teachings, and to make the teachings available to others. Dana is a form of giving and sharing. It is a fundamental, simple and easy way to train oneself to let go of greed, thus setting us on the path to liberation. If you would like to support the Temple financially, we are accepting donations to our Land and Building Fund.

In whatever form your generosity manifests itself; your presence, your practice, and your good heart are a gift to the world. I look forward to seeing you at Wat Buddhametta when things return to normal after the end of the pandemic. Until then we shall all live with a good heart, good will, good speech and good actions for the peace and happiness of all!
With many blessings!
