We welcome you to support us
in whichever way feels right to you
A priceless service
We believe the Dhamma to be priceless, of incomparable value. As such, we refuse to charge a price for it. Instead we run our community purely by your voluntary donations, offering you all the opportunity and the responsibility to support us in whichever way feels right to you.
Our culture of living purely from your offerings is in keeping with the tradition established by the Buddha – a tradition that has been passed on by faithful custodians of the Dhamma for over 2500 years.
Running our community in this way not only allows us to offer our services free from financial discrimination, but also invites us all into a way of growing together based on qualities such as generosity, love, trust, renunciation, gratitude, and wisdom. We invite you to join us wholeheartedly in this culture.
We suggest that you contribute to the community in whichever way you feel best reflects your value for what we do. Your giving should be a source of joy, and we suggest you make an offering that leaves you feeling peaceful and happy.
At the moment any money offered will be used primarily for buying land and developing our community in Granada, though we may also use your donations for other costs associated with running the community such as food, building materials, and other basic needs.
There are always things that we need. At the moment some things that would be especially appreciated are:
- Non-perishable foods such as grains and pulses, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, oils, preserves, herbs and spices, biscuits and crackers, tea and coffee.
- Books. We especially welcome Dhamma books, but also appreciate books about other spiritual traditions and religions, rewilding and permaculture, science, philosophy, world classics, etc.
- Tents and camping equipment.
- Solar panels.
- Medicines and basic first aid equipment.
