Donations

The teachings of the Buddha are priceless and given for free by all of the Theravada monastics associated with the OBS. The OBS in turn reflects the generosity of its members by supporting the monasteries, monks and nuns who share the teachings of the Buddha with us.

And what is the accomplishment of generosity? Here, a noble disciple dwells at home with a mind free from stinginess, freely generous, open-handed, delighting in relinquishment, one devoted to charity, delighting in giving and sharing.
