Retreat, Summer 2018

$130 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 3 people in 1 month
For a number of years I have gone to Palyul Retreat Center in Upstate NY, during the annual Summer retreat. It is usually on from July 10 to August 10. There is always a way to accumulate merit for all while making offerings to various parts of this great gathering. Directly to the masters. To cover teaching program's costs, food costs at the cost level as well as whenever possible beyond. 

In no way my going to the retreat is contingent on the donations received. I will try to be there as much as I can and costs will get covered, I am sure.

However to generate merit, for myself and all others.  Please offer something to me so that I could in turn offer it to the temple, it will actually help myself and everyone in the mandala, Many small efforts put together produce great results.

Thank you in advance for all of your attention to this, online, here and in person.

With best regards,
And with utmost respect for any contribution made,

Exiting new addition. If you as a supporter offer $1008 or more, I can offer you a painting in return. to follow my recent return to painting check in here: https://choying.org/tag/painting -Once upon a time in a galaxy far far away, I was a painter recognized on the street on a the Capitol of a small European country, while exhibiting in galleries and museums. After coming to US of A, creative had to be put on the back burner, as even my English was very slight... Get in touch if you like to get a painting. Your contribution will still go towards same goals, as support for Buddhist activities of the temple that I go to for "Summer Retreat" retreat.palyul.org

Hi, big beard alex here :)

Please consider offering to offset cost of the annual Summer retreat. Especially if you don't know what else to do with the money. From my side, I can say that it will help, I will dedicate all and any merit and will bring every penny over to the temple. Thank you for reading -Your friend Sherab Gyatso Alex
I promise: I will do more selfies :)

A lot of times fundraisers for spiritual retreat are conditional, as in: "If i do not get enough resources, then I would not be able to attend". If you are aware of one like that, please donate to them first.

In this case here, I ask for donations as well. But the idea is to somehow break the barrier of not seriously thinking of offering support to spiritual pursuits of others. It should be a very good idea if you yourself are currently too occupied with worldly pursuits and can not attend. A very good way to connect to timeless. From my side I can only promise that I will donate all the offerings to the temple and contemplate on the liberation of all sentient beings to the best of my ability.

If you choose to donate in person or here,
I dedicate all merit to all that is good for everyone.
