Dāna for American Buddhist Monasteries
Organized by: Eleanor Phelps
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this fundraiser. All of the money raised has been distributed between Sati Saraniya Hermitage, Tisarana Buddhist Monastery, Sravasti Abbey, and Blue Cliff Monastery.
The fundraiser is now closed. If you wish to donate directly to these monasteries, information about this can be found on their respective websites.
For my Buddhist Studies MA thesis I am researching American Buddhist monastics. To do this, I will be visiting monasteries in North America. I am scheduled to stay at Sati Saraniya Hermitage and Tisarana Buddhist Monastery - ON, Sravasti Abbey - WA, and Blue Cliff Monastery - NY.
These Buddhist monasteries are completely dependent on the lay community. So I hope you will take this opportunity to practice dāna (generosity) and generate good merit by making a donation, even only a small one.
All money raised has been given to monasteries.
