In Buddhism, teachings are shared freely as they are beyond price. At Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community, we depend on the Buddhist tradition of dana, or generosity, rather than commercial transactions. Dana comes from the heart, not as a payment but as a voluntary contribution.
Your contributions support our community (sangha), our wider Dharma activities, community-engaged projects like Gather in Middlebury, and our harmonious living at the Zen center in Cornwall.
We welcome donations for our community projects and the overall functioning of Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community. We are deeply grateful to all who contribute, making our community life possible.
In addition to giving online, you can also send a check made out to Bread Loaf Mountain Zen Community, via U.S. mail, to:
