Needs and generosity

All the work of the sangha is done by volunteers. Our operations, however, cost money -- $4,100 per year just to cover fixed costs such as rent, insurance and license fees. More is needed each year for other items such as candles, incense and printing.


It is the Zen tradition to present the teachings freely, because they are priceless; in the  tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by offering money or service. Dana is given from the heart, not as part of a transaction. It supports the sangha, the larger Dharma community, and our own practice.
