We are currently going into several different prisons in the Michigan Department of Corrections system to teach the Buddhadharma and lead meditation practice for Buddhist inmates. In addition, we have donated dozens of malas (meditation beads) and given over 50 new Dharma books to inmates in MDOC facilities just in the last few months.
Sokuzan is a member of the Chaplaincy Advisory Council of the MDOC in Lansing, MI. He also trains volunteers to go into facilities to conduct services for inmates. Please contact Sokuzan for more information about volunteering, inside and outside of Michigan’s prisons.
If you wish to help us with gas and other expenses for our prison work, please consider making a donation.
SokukoJi Buddhist Temple Monastery is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization incorporated in the state of Michigan. Your donation is tax deductible. Please help us help others. Thank you.
