There are particular karmic results associated with each of these kinds of offerings. You are invited to speak with Lama Pema, Khenpo Sonam, and all of our monks about this aspect of cause and effect. Learning about the specific merit that is accumulated with these offerings is another opportunity for engaging the dharma for the benefit of oneself and all beings!
Donations of service are welcome, needed and a joy. We will make arrangements for membership through service for anyone wishing to be a member through service, but who is unable to commit financially. Please just let us know, as everyone is welcome and invited to travel on this dharma journey together with us here.
