Raised by 14 people in 15 days
Welcome to Blue Mountain  Zendo's 2018 Fall  Fundraiser Page. Blue Mountain Zendo has operated within Eastern Pennsylvania for twenty years, offering authentic Rinzai Zen Practice. Community outreach programs such as; public lectures, interfaith meetings, chaplaincy, crises placement, meditation workshops and animal/enviromental advocacy have been the focus of the temple since its inception. Blue Mountain Zendo is maintained by its abbot Joriki Baker, Osho and a small order of laywomen/men who call the zendo their spiritual home. Blue Mountain Zendo is a registered non-profit and is supported soley by outside contributions. The temple has never required fees or dues, it operates in the tradition of Dana (charity). Once a year the sangha (congregation) reaches out to the greater spiritual community to gather donations which will carry the zendo through the cold winter months. The temple is heated primarily via woodstoves, with baseboard supplimental heat. Our woodstoves and chimneys are in need of repair and fall maintenance, and our yearly heating expenses run around $3,000. With deep gratitude and a reverential heart, we are reaching out, so that we may continue to offer a place for all those seeking refuge and spiritual awakening. It is Blue Mountain's Zendo's vision to lend aid to all sentient being who seeks sanctuary. It is our beleif that all life is precious and it is our responsiblity to both respect and nurture it.

For every $20 or more donation given,  you will automatically be entered to win a Japanese signed dragon sumie (water colored scroll).

We have reached $1,000 thanks to S. Trollinger! We are half-way to our goal of $2000, however, we still need your help. Blue Mountain Zendo is funded solely by people just like you. Please join Blue Mountain in ensuring there is a refuge for all those seeking truth and spiritual awakening in eastern Pa.
Every donation of $20 or more enters you into a drawling for a Japanese Dragon Sumie appraised at $400. Nine bows, Joriki

One of our goals this year is to complete our stone walkway. We have been extending it as funds have become available. We estimate it will take another $400 to buy the rest of the stone we need.
