First Monday of every month Basic meditation instruction and questions about the Sangha are answered these nights for the first 20 minutes of the service. All welcome!
Note: Meditation instruction for the first 20 minutes is offered to anyone interested. It’s a great opportunity to bring others to get a quick intro to meditation and to experience group meditation and service. Please let us know before you arrive or come a little early so we can pair you up with someone to guide you.
If you can’t attend our group meditation, you can find a group that practices sitting Meditation near you.
Volunteer @ sangha- Our Monday night program would not be possible without the work of our volunteers. We need help with setup, cleanup, delivery of donations to the local food pantry and more. Please volunteer for setup, & to lead service ( follow this easy guide if you need help with signing up ) or ask any of the board members any time if you are interested in helping out.
- If you are interested in leading the sitting service, please note that you need to be a member of the sangha (check out this information – more about being a member)
- You do not need to be a member of the Sangha to join us in any of our events. However, a free membership is available to help deepen your commitment to meditation and the Sangha, as well as to have voting privileges in yearly elections, and more. Ask on a Monday evening for a membership form or see it online.
Sangha Support (Dana)*
The Sangha offers our weekly meetings, programs, and retreats through the volunteer efforts of members and the Board. We rely on your weekly donations (dana) to pay the rent and provide various programs. Our teachers receive no payment for their instruction, however in the tradition of dana (generosity) they are supported solely by your voluntary donations.
May your generosity be a spontaneous expression of gratitude. We have a donation box on the lobby table with the order of service booklets. Your donations are tax deductible and we can provide tax receipts on request.
The Buddhist Sangha of Bucks County is fortunate to have teachers visit us from time to time and share the dharma with us. Click to see a page is dedicated to sharing information about them.
