Work Days and Offerings Help to the Temple
The Temple exists through the offerings of its congregation and friends. Buddhist training is based not just on receiving the spiritual nourishment the Sangha offers, but also on our own willingness to learn to cultivate gratitude and make offerings. One vital offering is of one's time to help with the work at the Temple. This includes a variety of tasks, from helping to maintain the buildings and grounds, to animal care, cooking, cleaning, looking after the library and meditation hall, assisting with the Newsletter, web site, shopping, transporting monks, or making tea, etc.
