All instruction and dissemination of meditation practice material offered here are free of charge, and we never expect anything in return. There are costs involved in running courses, creating and distributing Dhamma materials, as well as running and maintaining a meditation centre. For this reason, people often ask if there is a way they may support our organization. Below is a list of ways you may support our work.
Persons wishing to donate monetary support for our projects may donate to Sirimangalo International, our registered charity located in Ontario, Canada. Donations will be generally used to support our meditation centre as well as our online teachings including our YouTube broadcasts and this website. Our donation options are below:
Donate Via PayPal Giving Fund (CAD)
Donating through PayPal Giving Fund ensures your full donation makes it to the organization, as we incur no fees on donations through this platform (you may incur a currency conversion fee from your financial institution). Please note that donations through this platform are in Canadian Dollars. The widget below can help you convert from your currency. Unfortunately, there is no way to set up a recurring payment through this platform.
Donate or Subscribe Via PayPal (USD)
The buttons below will allow you to donate US Dollars to our organization in a one-time payment or monthly subscription. We incur a fee of 1.6% + $0.30 on each donation, plus an additional fee to convert to Canadian dollars. Use the options below if you have a strong preference for donating in USD, or would like to set up a monthly recurring donation.
You may donate directly to Sirimangalo International by international (or local) bank transfer. Please contact our organization for banking details.
Running meditation courses requires many different supplies; you can help us by donating needed items from our
Amazon Wish List.

Dissemination of the Teaching
Aside from monetary donation, simply helping to spread the word about us and our website, distributing our video, audio and written materials, or seeding our How To Meditate DVD via Bit Torrent (please visit this site for instructions on how to use Bit Torrent). Our book on How to Meditate is a good start for anyone interested in meditation in this tradition, so passing it on to others would be a great help for our work.
Building our meditation center
Persons wishing to help with our ongoing work to build a stable and lasting meditation centre should contact us for more information.
Thank you to all of those generous beings who have already supported us thus far, and may all find peace, happiness and freedom from suffering. Anumodana.
