a note on our funding sources:

We do not receive any form of remuneration for our teaching, work and publications. This includes any royalties, translation rights, etc., even in the case of books that come out with commercial publishers.

It is all freely offered as a gift of Dharma.

Our director and co-director, Bhikkhunī Dhammadinnā and Bhikkhu Anālayo, are alms mendicants who live according to the Theravāda monastic rule. They do not possess nor use money. Their livelihood and thereby ability to contribute to the study and practice of the Buddha’s teachings are entirely dependent on the generosity of the lay community.

The Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts generously provides a hub for our work. This is possible thanks to the vision and the generosity of  the late venerable Master Sheng Yen (1930-2009) (founder of Dharma Drum Mountain), Master Huimin (president of the Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts), the Saṅgha and the lay community of Dharma Drum Mountain.

Our costs have been so far mostly crowd-funded by Buddhist donors via the Fundación Bodhiyāna of Argentina. We have no big donor behind us. Each and every donation, small or big, will allow us to continue our service.
