Donations

There is no need to be concerned about how small the gift may be
so long as it brings True results for, even if it is only a single phrase
or a verse of the teaching,
 it may be a seed to bring forth good fruit
both now and in the future.

DANA OR GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT

From the time of the Buddha, a relationship of dana (generosity of spirit), mutual aid and trust has endured between the laity and the monastic members of the Buddhist Sangha. This reciprocal respect and kindness and depth of commitment to help each other is what enables Buddhism to survive and grow. We are deeply grateful for your kindness and generosity of all kinds in helping us to maintain this place of training.

FINANCIAL DONATIONS
Redding Zen Buddhist Priory is supported entirely by dana. If you would like to help support us by sending a donation by check please feel free to mail to it to Redding Zen Buddhist Priory, 1190 South Street, Redding CA. 96001.  Redding Zen currently operates under the auspices of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives’ 501C-3 and all donations are tax deductible under the United States tax code.  We are deeply grateful for your support.

IN-KIND DONATIONS
You may also make in-kind donations of food or materials, or of practical help including offering general work or professional skills.  Offerings of time, skill, and labor are offerings of dana, too. There are many opportunities to contribute your expertise in completing special projects and with ongoing needs.  Offerings of office, cleaning, and garden supplies are gratefully received.

When one is identified with the food one eats,
one is identified with the whole universe;

when we are one with the whole universe we are one with the food we eat …
the whole universe and a meal are identical in quality.
