The founders, director and volunteer staff of One Earth Sangha offer this space as our own expression of dana, or generosity, to the Earth and to the Buddhist wisdom tradition. Generosity is the first of the ten paramis, or qualities of character, to be perfected in spiritual life. The very act of giving benefits the person who gives, for it opens the heart, lessens self-absorption, and serves the well being of others. Simply offering a small favor, a kind thought, a meal, or a flower may be a sincere form of spiritual practice.
Every donation matters. We commit to you to stretch every dollar as far as we possibly can. A contribution of $100 USD, for example:
- Covers most of a scholarship for one EcoSattva Training participant
- Enables and adds to guaranteed payments to our EcoDharma teachers
- Keeps the technical infrastructure of our platform, our “virtual ecodharma center,” running for a month
- Enables us to keep all of our communication channels running for a month
- Supports the work of coordinating with interfaith partners on engagement opportunities
Inspire Fierce Compassion
For a donation of $500 or more, we’re offering a special thank you gift. This banner with the slogan “Embody Fierce Compassion” is approximately 2’x3′, silk screened on linen. As these are made by hand, each is slightly different. Many have been used in demonstrations and displayed in Dharma centers to represent a call and a way for all of us to engage in social issues. If you’re interested, make your donation below and then provide your shipping address on this separate form.
