This opportunity is offered on a dana (generosity) basis with all proceeds going to benefit Awakening Truth, which in turn supports The bhikkhuni’s resident at Shakti Vihara.
Bhikkhunis living as alms mendicants rely upon the community to support them in the material world. In this way they are able to dedicate themselves to practice and to being of service to others. By supporting them through donations of money, time, or service, you support their ability to reach out to all of us in order to spread the teachings of the Buddha. This is one example whereby, generosity is what keeps the Dhamma alive. For more information on how to support the Bhikkhuni’s at Shakti Vihara in Colorado Springs and now in Santa Rosa see donate and support.
★ Statement of Intention
“It is the intention of this group to explore the Buddhist, non-theistic perspective on Dharma as a way of dealing with daily life, to listen with compassion and collectedness and speak with attention focused on body in order to support release of suffering, tension and clinging in all it forms. The Buddha envisioned monastics and lay communities supporting each other. A healthy Sangha is like an old growth forest that contains tremendous diversity. Everything has a place; the inter-relationships are widely beneficial not only for members of the Sangha but for the world. In this model, everyone joins together, independent of their precept level or commitment to practice, in order to support each other as a community in their aspiration to awaken.
