Dhammagiri is entirely dependent on donations. We do not charge for any teachings, activities or retreats. As the monks are prohibited by the Vinaya to own or handle money, all financial donations to Dhammagiri Forest Hermitage are accounted for and managed by Brisbane Buddhist Vihara Inc (BBV). BBV Inc is a non-profit organization, registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission, who act as steward of the monastery.
If you would like to help Dhammagiri with our running expenses or special projects, and support the Sangha and the teachings of the Buddha, you can make a donation either on-line, or by downloading a donation form and forwarding a cheque, or by local or international bank transfer.
Please note that donations are not tax deductible for Australian residents. If you require a receipt for your donation, please provide your name and email address.

Over the years Dhammagiri has hosted many well-known local and overseas senior and junior monks. The monastery incurs substantial costs in financing the medical costs for all these visiting monks as well as the resident sangha. It is only due to your generous donations that we have been able to cover these expenses.
As well as the resident sangha, over the years Dhammagiri has hosted many well-known local and overseas senior and junior monks, whose visits have been spiritually uplifting experiences for all. The monastery incurs substantial costs in financing the medical costs for all these venerable monks.
"You give because giving is good for the heart, and because the survival of the Dhamma as living principle depends on daily acts of generosity.”
