Metta Meditation Center

Post by JeffR » Tue Apr 25, 2017 3:52 am

Triple Gem of the North; a local meditation center run by Buddhist monks from Sri Lanka SW of Minneapolis, is trying to purchase a retreat center located in the Minnesota countryside. I like TGN because they offer secular meditation for the greater public, as most meditation centers do, but they also go deeper into the dhamma. Details on the retreat center are in the link below; near the bottom is the address for TGN to mail donations by check or you can go here to donate online:

Will you help us?

In order to purchase the retreat center, we need your help. We have already received very generous financial pledges for more than half the required down payment. If 100 of you would donate $1,000 we would meet our goal by May 1. We understand many of you cannot donate this amount, but please consider donating $500, $200 or $100.

We invite you to be a part of this special effort by making your contribution today. You may drop off your check in person or mail it to the Mindfulness Center, 212 N. Chestnut St., Chaska MN 55318 (Write “Metta Meditation Center” in the memo line). As always, if you have any questions or are interested in hearing more details, please come speak to me or send an email to info@triplegem.org.

In service to our noble, loving community,

Triple Gem has almost reached enough to make the down payment, but still needs several thousand more. It's getting down to the wire, so if you are able to help out you can mail a check; mail it to the Mindfulness Center, 212 N. Chestnut St., Chaska MN 55318, USA (Write “Metta Meditation Center” in the memo line).

Or use the first link in the OP for a crowdfunding site.
