“In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Generosity is regarded as one of the paramitas or perfections that a bodhisattva achieves on the way to enlightenment, along with such virtues as patience, discipline, and wisdom. Dana is also understood as a form of kindness and compassion practice motivated by unconditional caring for another….” – Phillip Moffitt
When we create our new One River website, you will be able to make electronic contributions, at varying levels of support, with the Donate button on the website. There is presently a basket for cash donations at the rear of the meditation hall, and we hope to begin utilizing credit card swipe. Your contributions are tax deductible. They pay for the rental of the beautiful meditation hall we enjoy and support the teachers and the teachings.
