Special note on Generosity/Dana
The time and space, the presence of the monastics, and these precious teachings -- all will be being offered freely in the spirit of inspired generosity and Dhamma friendship. It is a great treasure for those who are participating in offering and sharing this possibility to be able to do so.

Our monastics live completely on the ethics of freewill generosity. There will be no "dana talks", fees charged, requests for donations, or suggested donation at the vihara. You are welcome, as you feel moved, to contribute to food or useful supplies, to offer your gift of service at any time/s in the way you feel called to, to participate in days of communal almsgiving, to contribute to Vihara rent and utilities, monastic medical or useful things -- and/or to simply share the blessings of the practice with all in your life!

Thank you for your practice. May you have every good blessing...
We hope you enjoy and gain much benefit from the Dhamma teachings!
