Thank you for your generosity
Whether or not you are able to make a donation, there are other ways you can help further the goals of DDM, such as volunteering your time, skills, and energy, as many are doing at DDM centres around the world. On behalf of our late founder, Master Sheng Yen, and the sangha, thank you for everything you are doing through your own practice and generosity.
DDM Melbourne relies on the volunteer efforts of many to share in the tasks and responsibilities of sustaining it. Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to strengthen our practice outside the meditation hall, cultivate loving kindness toward others, further your connection to the community, and make the centre your true refuge.
The centre needs volunteer support for various regular and special activities it holds from time to time. If you would like to volunteer please email email@example.com
Thank you very much!
