“The Dhamma is for free. At all times. For everybody.
Bhante Ānanda is a monk (and hence a member of the Saṅgha) and is dedicating his life to the Dhamma. He is dependent on others for his modest livelihood. He does not need a lot, but as pointed out by the Buddha himself, food, shelter, clothing and medicines are the minimum requisites for life and to practice in peace. Monks do not (and cannot) handle money, and do not ask for anything.
Monks practice contentment and to be happy with what is given to them. They can only accept what is given out of generosity by others. All that is offered to them is property of the order of monks, even food, therefore, nothing is ‘theirs’, monks possess nothing. This is pure dhamma. No personal gain possible, no money involved.
All donations will go 100% to the support of the Saṅgha’s livelihood and thereby, Bhante’s. Since the meager needs of monks are rapidly and easily met, what is given will go directly to offering the Dhamma to as many other people in the community as possible, in the shape of retreats, both online and physical, publication of Bhante’s Dhamma books for free distribution only and much more…
We are deeply and forever grateful to your magnanimous hearts.
Sādhu Sādhu Sādhu.
