Donations

Dharma Jewel Monastery welcomes people of all cultures and faiths who are interested in learning Chan meditation and the ageless wisdom of Buddha’s teachings. We offer meditation classes for adults and children, half-day meditation retreats, as well as other programs, all at no charge to the community. We are supported by your generous donations. All donations will go toward maintaining those programs and supporting the expansion project at Dharma Jewel Monastery.
