Compassionate Activity

The wish to bring benefit to beings lies at the heart of Buddhist practice—and engaging in compassionate activities is a natural expression of this wish. Helping those in need, making offerings and prayers to the buddhas and bodhisattvas on behalf of all beings, and supporting the conditions for the sangha to flourish are ways of serving others that lessens our self-cherishing and awakens our potential for greater compassion. Below you will find opportunities for your donations and prayers, which will have a direct effect on beings in need. If you are inspired to contribute, we ask you to take a moment to rejoice in your own generosity, for when we give, we don’t just benefit others. Our generosity plants a seed that will one day blossom into enlightenment.
