General contributions towards these special practices are also welcome. Be sure to include a prayer with your donation which will be read aloud to the assembly.
It is customary to make “changbu” (squeezing a small slice of bread in your left hand, leaving imprints) to place in the Chiblu box. You may mail a changbu, along with pieces of fingernails, stands of hair and loose change to be placed inside the Chiblu box. YOUR CHANGBU MUST BE RECEIVED BEFORE FEBRUARY 23rd.

As we are not able to check email during chanting events, please send your prayer request and sponsorship information 48 hours before the first day of chanting to guarantee that we receive it in time to announce your prayer. If you are not able to do that, please leave a short but clear message of your prayer on 845-297-2500 and we will do our best to have your prayer announced.
