Donate to the
Alameda Center for Buddhist Meditation
Samatha meditation is given freely to anybody wishing to learn,
There is no charge for the teaching and no charge for attending local classes or courses at Alameda Center for Buddhist Meditation. Generosity is a cornerstone of Buddhist practice and Samatha relies completely on the generosity of its supporters.
People attending local weekly classes are asked to give a contribution towards the hire of the room and refreshments. Those taking part in weekend or longer courses at the center give an amount they feel is right. We believe relying on voluntary donations is in accord with the Buddha’s teaching.
