Join us for these upcoming events.
T he Buddha said, “If beings knew, as I know, the results of giving & sharing, they would not eat without having given.“
We hope you give often and receive gracefully everywhere in your life, and if you can, we invite you help support Portland Friends of the Dhamma.
Read on to learn more about our current wish list and your giving options: community members can donate through PayPal and Network for Good, can offer investments, can donate as part of their wills, and at Fred Meyer and through Amazon Smile, they can support the sangha whenever they shop. Let us know if you have other ideas.
Portland Friends of the Dhamma is supported through dana, which in Pali means generous giving.
Practically speaking, we could not exist without the freewill donations that supply us with food, soap and candles as well as all utilities and the costs incurred when we host monastics.
Monthly donations are especially appreciated, as the regularity helps to stabilize our financial responsibilities. Whether or not you can give to Portland Friends of the Dhamma today, we hope you find a way to give often in your life — the benefits are truly amazing. As Ajahn Chah would say, “Try it out, see for yourself!”
