Generosity has always been a fundamental aspect of the Buddhadharma, and of all the six perfections taught in the Mahayana, generosity marks the beginning of the bodhisattva’s path. Ancient Buddhist history recounts the tales of the legendary patrons of the Dharma, such as Dharma King Trisong Detsen, who gave the entirety of their vast treasuries to support the Dharma. To allow for lay and monastic practitioners to completely dedicate their lives to the study and practice of the Dharma, and thus allow the Dharma to flourish and spread, is entirely rooted in the practice of generosity. By engaging in generosity, and especially by supporting the Buddha’s Dharma, the accumulation of merit is perfected. In these times of global challenge, this abundance is needed, now more than ever.

Samye Translations ongoing projects would not have been possible without your continued financial support. To keep our projects alive, please consider supporting us with a donation. The most effective way to offer support is by becoming a patron through monthly donations. To do so, join us on Patreon, where you can donate as little as $2 per month. If you would prefer, you can simply offer a one-time donation.

All donations and proceeds go towards funding further projects and supporting our ever-growing endeavor to make the teachings of the precious guru and lineage masters available to students across the world.

Additionally, we are pleased to offer the opportunity for our kind patrons to dedicate their offerings through the following link. Simply fill out the form and we will dedicate your offerings as you specify going forward. The dedication can include your own name, a particular reason or cause you are dedicating to, or an individual you wish to include in the merit of offering. These dedications will be shared with Phakchok Rinpoche’s monks at Dö-Ngak Ling Monastery in Chapagaon who will include the names and well wishes in their pujas. We hope this will increase the virtue of your generosity, creating benefit for all beings.
