Where do your donations go?

Gifts to Jaya 
I am grateful and honored to receive your gifts.
With this support, I can cover the expenses of living, from socks and carrots to car repair, birthdays and my kids' dentist, as well as taxes and long trips to visit family. I receive no salary or stipend for either teachings or the countless hours of organizational work between events. I live, and support my family, on gifts.

How wonderful and simple. I highly recommend experimenting with this way of living.


Thanks to generosity from friends and supporters around the world, I can devote myself wholly to serving the Dharma.


Mutually supporting each other through giving freely and wholeheartedly, we can let the giving also radiate warmth and companionship in our lives.

If you break the cherry tree

where are the flowers?

But in the spring time, see how they bloom!

 

The vast flood

Rolls onward

But yield yourself.

And it floats you upon it.

Poem
 

Willing to die,
You give up
your will. Keep still
until, moved
by what moves
all else,
you move.
