Sanshin Zen Community is supported by the generosity of its practitioners and friends. Your contribution of any amount will be gratefully accepted and will be used to make sure the teaching and practice of our ancestors remains available. You can give either by mail or online, with a one-time or a recurring monthly donation. Instructions are below. Thank you for your wholehearted support.

Sustaining Membership in Sanshin

When Shohaku Okumura Roshi founded Sanshin in 1996, he chose to copy the example of Antai-ji, his home temple in Japan, and not offer formal membership. Over the years, many hundreds of people have been influenced by Roshi's lectures and books and by his example and practice without the opportunity to financially support his efforts on an ongoing basis.

Sanshin would now like to offer everyone the opportunity to become Sustaining Members. Please consider making a monthly commitment to support Sanshin.

Even a small regular donation can make a tremendous difference. Please consider: A small cup of coffee costs $1.65. If even half the people who've benefited from Okumura Roshi's efforts contributed this small sum every day Sanshin would be well supported. Please consider becoming a Sustaining Member. Sanshin appreciates your generosity.

All Subscription donations are 100% tax deductible.
