Support the Mentor Garden Zendo: Embrace the Spirit of Dānā and Takuhatsu


 Join us in sustaining the ancient tradition of generosity and help us continue providing invaluable support to our communities.

At Mentor Garden Zendo, we strive to carry forth the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, nurturing the spirit of generosity and interconnectedness that has been integral to our practice for millennia. Our community is deeply rooted in the ancient tradition of Dānā, the practice of giving, which stems from the time when the ordained would carry an alms bowl to receive offerings. This powerful act of generosity has transcended cultures, manifesting as Takuhatsu (托鉢) in Japan and now as "Passing the basket" or "Hat" in our modern-day society.

Your support is essential to our mission of fostering mindfulness, compassion, and inner peace in the communities we serve. By embracing the spirit of Dānā and Takuhatsu, you are not only contributing to the continued growth and success of Mentor Garden Zendo but also helping to preserve an ancient and meaningful practice that transcends time and borders.

No offering is too small, and every contribution is warmly appreciated. Your generosity will enable us to provide life-changing guidance and support to countless individuals on their journey to self-discovery and spiritual growth.

As a token of our gratitude, all donations made to Mentor Garden Zendo are tax-deductible. By giving to our cause, you are not only supporting the practice of meditation and mindfulness, but also creating a ripple effect of kindness and compassion that will reach far beyond our humble walls.

Together, let's uphold the spirit of generosity and continue to nourish the seeds of wisdom and compassion in our communities.

Thank you for your unwavering support and for walking this path of generosity with us.
