  • it is all freely offered as a gift of Dharma
  • 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 聖嚴法師 (1930-2009) (founder of Dharma Drum Mountain), Master Huimin 惠敏法師 (president of the Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts), Master Guohuei 果暉法師 (current abbot of Dharma Drum Mountain), the Saṅgha and the lay community of Dharma Drum Mountain
  • our costs have been so far mostly crowd-funded. We have no big donors behind us. Each and every donation, small or big, will allow us to continue our Dharma service
  • our founders the venerable Bhikkhunī Dhammadinnā 法樂法師 and Bhikkhu Anālayo 無著師 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
