The Triratna Tokyo Group is a small Buddhist community based on generosity.
We have no central institutional funding or wealthy benefactors. The small group funds itself completely. We are a “dana economy”, which means we rely on people’s generosity. People can give in many ways and we would like to make it easy for people to contribute in whatever way they are able to.
Dāna means “to give” or “generousness” and is a fundamental Buddhist attitude.
Contributions to class are as low as possible to keep access open. This only succeeds because so many people contribute to it through commitment. Everyone who feels connected to the Triratna Tokyo Group is invited to participate.
We are a non-profit association, but do not receive public funds or subsidies. Triratna Tokyo Group carries itself completely.
If you can give financially it is much appreciated! It will contribute to the class rental, travel and future needs such as meditation cushions and ultimately a space we can call our own.
Thank you for your generous support!

At the heart of this community is the Triratna Buddhist Order. The Order is neither monastic, nor lay, but simply Buddhist. Order members attempt to live out the Buddha’s teachings of Wisdom and Compassion as the primary commitment of their lives, whatever the particular circumstances of those lives may be.
