Mipham Shedra is currently seeking volunteers to help with various projects.
Mipham Shedra is completely volunteer-based; our purpose is to benefit sentient beings. Volunteering allows us to serve and honor this intention. There is a place for every one of us in this endeavor. The merit we accrue through such activity will never fade.
As Buddha has said,
Just as a drop of water that falls into the ocean
Will never disappear until the ocean runs dry,
Merit totally dedicated to enlightenment
Will never disappear until enlightenment is reached.
Can you help us? Even if you have just a few hours a week or month to volunteer, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
