Metta - Loving Kindness

per month
Buddhist meditation begins with Metta - Loving Kindness. No amount of monthly support is too small, and any gesture of support is a virtuous act of kindness.   

Karuna - Compassion

per month
The second stage of meditation is Karuna - Compassion. Every act of giving is a form of compassion, but to give to causes that support the dharma is an act of compassion toward the world.   

Mudita - Empathetic Joy

per month
The third stage of meditation is Mudita - Empathic Joy. This is when generosity transcends the bounds of giving and becomes a source of pleasure for all.
