Jaya Kula Gives Back

Throughout the ages, students have gone to extraordinary lengths to receive teachings and support their teachers. At the same time, teachers and lineages do their part to support sincere students.

Here’s what we are doing.

    • Pujas and celebrations are always free.
    • Satsang, kirtan and other regular services are “Give What You Can.” This means you are free to choose what to give. Additionally, our community asked for an option to give monthly for regular services. Jaya Kula’s sliding-scale program, Milk Ghee Ojas, provides this opportunity, along with other benefits.
    • Most other teachings, including multi-day teachings and retreats, offer a “regular” and a “low-income” option. Just choose what is right for you.
    • If you are already a regular student, or you are attending Jaya Kula Foundations (even for the first time), you can apply for a further discount from our Lakshmi’s Cupboard program. Contact Shambhavi, or just write to us.
    • Due to the generosity of donors, Jaya Kula is able to offer occasional small medical assistance grants to regular members of the Jaya Kula community.
    • New in 2016! Jaya Kula is now able to offer occasional financial assistance to help with travel costs when lower income students want to come to Portland, Maine to attend teachings.
    • Our Trident Fund donors manage our Generosity Talks Circle. Generosity Talks makes a modest annual donation to another religious- or spiritually-based nonprofit organization in order to support its mission.
