​​​Mahapajapati Monastery

​​​​​​living the buddha's ancient teachings in modern times

Mahapajapati Monastery is supported entirely by donations.

As a renunciant community, our needs are simple. But like any home or organization, we have expenses for food, property taxes, building and maintenance projects, liability and fire insurance, car insurance, car repairs, and gas, and we have regular monthly bills for electricity, phone, internet, trash collection, and recycling. Please consider supporting Mahapajapati Monastery so that we may continue to dedicate ourselves to living the Buddha's teachings and providing a refuge for those who wish to visit, as well as for those who are inspired by our practice from afar.


If you would like to make a financial donation to support the monastery, you can pledge monthly or offer a one-time donation, in accordance with your means and inspiration.


May your generosity bring you lasting happiness. And may it provide the gift of Dhamma to all those who come in contact with Mahapajapati Monastery.

The mahapajapati foundation is a religious non-profit corporation, recognized as a church by the state of california. all donations to the mahapajapati foundation are tax-deductible in the united states in accordance with irs code Section 501(c)(3).
