Our Mission

The long-term plan is to raise sufficient funds through private donations to build monks’ residences, a meditation hall, and a general purpose hall on the monastery grounds for use by the lay community. A major fundraising effort is currently underway to raise the monies for building this permanent monastery. All operating expenses and building fund capital are obtained from donations freely given by those who come to hear Dhamma talks and seek guidance from the monks.

Once the necessary structures are built at the forest site, the monks will continue to officiate Buddhist ceremonies and provide Dhamma instruction for all who seek it. The monastery will be a source of information and learning about Buddhism, as well provide a space for those who wish to come on short – or long-term retreats to deepen their practice of the Buddha’s teachings.
