Volunteers are the life blood of a thriving Dharma center, and Shantideva Center could not function if it wasn’t for our compassionate and dedicated team of volunteers. Many will agree that the rewards for doing such service are limitless. Now that we have moved into our new home in Park Slope, we could always use more helping hands. If you are interested in volunteering or helping in other ways, please contact Lauren Coleman, our Assistant Director and volunteer coordinator: [email protected].

A billion, zillion thanks from my heart to you for serving at the center. That is, as you know, to benefit sentient beings and the teachings of the Buddha. It is to benefit all sentient beings, not just people, but numberless hell beings, hungry ghosts, numberless animals, human beings, suras, asura beings, and numberless intermediate state beings, and to benefit the teachings of the Buddha. This is our main aim in life.
