Membership & Donations

Membership

Bodhi Manda Zen Center is a non-profit, religious organization. In the tradition of Zen monasteries, it relies on donations to sustain its activities. Without the interest and support of its members, Bodhi Manda Zen Center would not be possible.

The purpose of the membership program is to provide an opportunity for people outside the center to make a connection with Bodhi Manda Zen Center. Membership is a way to become part of a place where one can study, first-hand, Joshu Roshi’s unique style of Zen. If you have come to Bodhi Manda and appreciate the atmosphere that the volunteer staff and ordained people create, this is a way to be a part of that environment and ensure its continuation.

Dues are applied to the daily overhead that the Center has in serving the public and offering a different kind of place in today’s society: insurance, utilities, auto maintenance, building materials, and so on. Members are recognized as such and receive discounts for various functions from Sesshins to use of the motels.

There are several levels of membership involvement:

  • Supporting member – $600 annually
  • General member – $150 annually
  • Associate – $75 annually (for dues paying members of another Rinzai-ji Center)

One-time general donations, in any amount, are always welcome. To make a donation, please send it to:
Bodhi Manda Zen Center
PO Box 8
Jemez Springs, NM 87025

If you would like a receipt for tax purposes please let us know. Bodhi Manda Zen Center is a registered 501(c)3, non-profit religious organization.

Thank you again for your support!
