Sangha Support (Dana)*

The Buddhist Sangha of Bucks County offers our weekly meetings, programs, and retreats through the volunteer efforts of members and the Board. We rely on your weekly donations to pay the rental fee for this space. Our teachers and leaders receive no payment for their instruction: in the tradition of dana (generosity) they are supported solely by your voluntary donations. May your generosity be a spontaneous expression of gratitude

This Zen proverb addresses the first part of our Sangha’s mission, “to present, teach and practice Buddhism” and serves to capture the learning that many of us experienced this last year.   During this last year, we have not only studied new areas of the Buddha’s teachings, but several Buddhist traditions interpreting those teachings. At our annual meeting long time friend of the BSBC, Portia Roberts, returned to lead us in reciting the Heart Sutra and leading us in chanting the Heart Sutra’s mantra , accompanied with her harmonium in honoring Thich Nhat Hanh.
