Donations

Generosity of Spirit, dana, is a foundation of Buddhist practice. Since the time of the Buddha a relationship of mutual respect, trust, and support has been cultivated between monks and laity. Buddhist monks don’t charge for what they offer and depend on donations to support their practice.

Your kind donations in whatever form they come are deeply appreciated.

It is traditional to offer monks food; in the time of the Buddha, and for some Buddhist monks today, monks only eat if the laity offer food. This offering creates merit and blessings for the one who offers and for all beings.

At the current time Still Flowing Water Hermitage could make good use of:

  • Any produce is always welcome
  • Whole wheat tortillas
  • Canola oil
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • White sugar – 1 pound
  • Bulgur
  • Grits
  • Coffee – decaf
  • Whole grain pancake mix
  • Soy sauce

I would also be grateful for (these items may be used; in some ways that is preferable):

  • Muffin tin – preferably one that makes twelve muffins
  • Two cushions for lawn chairs, with seats and backs approximately 20″ x 20″
  • Inside front door mat (for wiping feet when coming into the house)
  • Box fan

Your kind donations in whatever form they come are deeply appreciated.
