The Parami Of Generosity (Donations)

According to the pure tradition of Vipassana, courses are run solely on the basis of freely offered donations. No fee is charged. The courses are financed totally by donations from students who have completed a prior course and have a volition to share the benefits they have received by giving donations for the students who will come after them. Neither the Teacher nor the Assistant Teachers receive any remuneration; they and those who serve the courses volunteer their time solely motivated by gratitude for the benefits personally received from Vipassana.

How donations are used:

Donations given at the end of a course and other general dana are used to finance future courses and center operations. This includes construction activities, food, utilities, supplies and maintenance, salaries of Cooks, Electricity Charges, Water charges, etc.
