Material gifts and the gift of Dharma inter-are. The material world does not exist without the spiritual. The spiritual world does not exist without the material.

Suggested Donations

The following are suggested. If you have it in your financial means to make an offering of this amount or greater, you are welcome to do that. If you do not, you will not be turned away from attending events, and there are other ways to be of assistance through volunteering.

For donations to Ricardo Anis (The Haitian student we are supporting through college), please communicate the amount you wish to donate to Daishin.   Please use the “Giving Fund” below so that 100% of your donation will go to meet the financial needs of Ricardo.

The difference between the Giving Fund account and a regular PayPal account is that with the Giving Fund, Zen Fields will have access to donations at a certain time each month, whereas with the regular account, donations are received immediately albeit with a certain percentage going to PayPal.
