Hey everyone,

Have you ever wanted to experience the life of a Buddhist monk or nun, or as a Bodhisattva Support Team Member, even for just a short period of time? Well, here's your chance!

Compassionate Service Society offers this Altruistic Sangha program that allows you to become a short-term Buddhist novice monk/nun, immersing yourself in their daily routines and practices. Not only will this give you an invaluable cultural experience, but it will also offer a glimpse into the mindful and intentional way of living.

Imagine disconnecting from the chaos of everyday life and indulging in moments of tranquility and introspection. Whether you're seeking personal growth or simply looking to enrich your understanding of Buddhism, this venture is sure to be engaging, and culturally diverse.

It's a chance to let the Dharma flow through every part of your being and consciousness and dedicate these 12 days solely to the benefit of your loved ones, those in need, and all of those who have been affected by natural disasters across the globe.

So why not take this opportunity to explore something new and connect with the inner peace within us?  

Brothers, sisters, and friends, let us come together as a sangha to heal and transform ourselves and those around us.

The Altruistic Sangha is confirmed to take place on December 28, 2023, through January 8, 2024 - at Pine Summit Camp. Brothers, sisters, and friends, you are cordially invited to join us as a sangha or as a Bodhisattva Support Team Member.
