Free Dhamma

“The Dhamma is for free. At all times. For everybody.

Bhante Ānanda is dedicating his life to the Dhamma. He is dependent on others for his modest livelihood. He does not need a lot, but as pointed out by the Buddha himself, food, shelter, clothing and medicines are the minimum requisites for life and to practice in peace. Monks do not (and cannot) handle money, and do not ask for anything. 


Monks practice contentment, to be happy with what is given to them. They can only accept what is given out of generosity by others. All that is offered to them is property of the order of monks, even food, therefore, nothing is ‘theirs’; monks possess nothing. This is pure Dhamma. No personal gain possible, no money involved. 


All donations will go 100% to the support of the Saṅgha’s livelihood and thereby, Bhante’s. Since the meager needs of monks are rapidly and easily met, what is given will go directly to offering the Dhamma to as many other people in the community as possible, in the shape of retreats, both online and physical, publication of Bhante’s Dhamma books for free distribution only and much more… 


We are deeply and forever grateful to your magnanimous hearts. 


Sādhu Sādhu Sādhu.

Practice Generosity



Monks and nuns say "Thank you" by their silence.
They say "Thank you" through their practice.

By their practice,
monks and nuns give the opportunity to others to do good deeds
by supporting their practice and all that comes around it.
The opportunity to give in this context, itself, is rare.

As the Buddha said:
"The gift of Dhamma is the highest gift."

Monks and nuns have no material possessions,
and for the lay community,
generosity is the special bridge by which
a person gets the chance to see
and interact with the monastic community.

This contact itself is the gift.

The Buddha teaches us to give without expectations.
That is the proper way to give.
To give with a free and uplifted mind,
understanding how fortunate one is
only to give,
to support the good Dhamma
wishing for their gift to benefit all sentient beings.

This will be for the giver's welfare and happiness.
Here and now and in times to come.

Bhante Ānanda
