Support Our Work

get_involved-544x550We invite and welcome everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to share in the responsibility of spreading the Dharma “in the Ten Directions”. Our spiritual teachers share a deep conviction that more than ever before, our world needs the examples of wisdom and compassion, and a skilful means of living a life that supports a more sustainable and peaceful future for all sentient beings.These teachers live their lives committed to helping others discover and live their deepest intentions in a more authentic way.

When you make a tax-deductible donation to the Contemplative Order of Compassion, you are taking ownership and sharing in the responsibility for everything we do, including:

  • Providing more than 45 weeks of free Dharma instruction online and at the hermitage and monastic residences, each year
  • Providing free dharma materials to those unable to afford the books written by our abbot and spiritual director, Lama Gurudas Śunyatananda (Dr. F. Gianmichael Salvato).
  • Serving as pen-pals to the incarcerated, and to those in recovery
  • Encouraging cultural, ethnic and spiritual diversity with our Dharma centres and in the communities in which we live
  • Advocating for compassionate action, social justice and community service
  • Providing on-going spiritual formation for prospective and aspiring contemplatives, through Western Buddhist University
  • Maintaining the host of websites, virtual classrooms, and discussion groups used in our programs
