We are a 501(c)3 organization that has been supported by free-will donations, or dana, since 2000. We don’t charge for classes, programs, or teachings. Our space is available to anyone who has a sincere interest in practicing the Dhamma, learning meditation, or drawing near to the community and the monastics in our lineage.
Our teachers and core practitioners are grounded in the Buddha’s precepts for laypeople. Everyone with a sincere interest in the Dhamma is welcome, yet over time, many find they want to refine their practice to include sila.
Our classes are rooted in the ancient teachings of the Buddha, the noble eightfold path, and the development of a sincere and lifelong meditation practice.
Those who are inspired to support Portland Friends of the Dhamma into the future, and make these offerings available to those who come after us, we appreciate your generosity, and are happy to be offering something you wish to support.
