All our buddhism and meditation classes are offered free of charge. We don’t want to put a fee on the Buddha’s teachings.
If you would like to make a contribution towards the running costs of the Centre, your donation will be most appreciated. Thank you.
This ethos of not charging is called a “dana economy”, and dana means generosity or giving. Below is our statement of intention for offering our classes for free:
"The dana economy at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre removes barriers to how we share the Buddha’s teachings by giving them freely. We aspire to continue our spirit of abundance and generosity, in which all can fully participate.
By removing the fees for classes, we, the established community of the Glasgow Buddhist Centre will take full ownership of the Centre financially, and by giving in other ways; with our time, energy and engagement.”
