supporting our community
Life in a Buddhist monastic community is in every sense a dependent arising that connects us intimately to others. Just as we devote our lives entirely to a Buddhist monastic path, our lives in turn depend entirely on the kindness of many others. In particular, we depend on those whose generosity sustains our bodies and our activities, without our spiritual life would be impossible. In this way, our sponsors participate in our lives at every moment, even though they may not be physically near.
Life in our community is simple, in material terms, and the annual budget for our life together is $10,000, with another $6,000 proposed to support our study program.

in Buddhist monastic terms entails giving up the active pursuit of
material wellbeing, and remaining content with whatever
conditions are offered.
We cultivate gratitude towards
those who support us, and this gratitude gives rise to a deep sense
of responsibility to live purely and engage sincerely
whole-heartedly in the spiritual path that our benefactors are
supporting. Our sponsors are therefore directly responsible for the
intensity and purity of our spiritual practice, as well as its material
conditions, and for this, our gratitufde deepens further. We thank you
for support, for your interest and for your prayers. It is due to you
that our lives here are possible.
