Your donation is precious


Dear Community, CTBC became a monastery for six months from June 1 - Dec 1, 2020.  Ajahn Subharo was in residence during this time.  We are now searching for another monastic to take up residence.  A senior nun will be arriving April 2022 for a two month visit.  If all goes well she will return as our first of two resident monastics.  We have space for two nuns.  We are actively searching for a second nun.

Currently the monastery is being financed by a Board member.  This support will end with her passing and if the monastery is to continue, the community will need to take over the financial support.

If you value the presence of a local monastery where you can receive Buddhist teachings and support, please consider offering a donation.  If possible a recurring monthly donation would be very helpful.  Donations while Ajahn Subharo was here paid for the monastic's and the steward's food and personal items but not the cost of maintaining the monastery.

To give an idea of what it would take to fully support the monastery, If 100 people each gave $15 a month, this would cover basic expenses (utilities, taxes, insurance, some food....we assume food would be offered for many meals and thus not be an expense for the monastery).

Thank you for your support.  Annumodana.
