…I will strive to ceaselessly cultivate Bodhicitta….The aspiration to work for the benefit of others…
In the continuing practice of loving kindness, we volunteer our time and effort to assist many organizations around the Grand Rapids area. Not only is this a great opportunity to give back to our community, it is also an excellent way to get to know our fellow Sangha members as we work together.
Check our Calendar for upcoming service and volunteer activities!
