Become a PCD Dallas MicroPatron
Because it feels good to give and support a worthy cause.
Even $5 per month is very helpful, if enough individuals give.
Your Monthly Donation of $10, $25 or more – will have far-reaching positive effects.
The amount given is not as important as the action of Donating.
The motivation for dana (giving), one of the Buddhist Six Perfections* (paramitas), is utterly pure.
Opportunities to Give – Winter 2011
Sponsor the Sand Mandala Event
As you might imagine, the cost of putting on an event that spans 5 full days with Rinpoche and 7 Namdroling Lopon Monks is quite staggering. Making a financial contribution of any size with a sincere intent to help others is tremendously meritorious, whether you are able to be there physically or not….with your donation of any amount you enter into this living mandala of enlightened activity, the benefits of which are immeasurable.
Sponsor the Temple Building Project (includes Land/Temple/Shedra)
You can donate directly to a special fund that will go toward the purchase of the land and the building of the future temple compound that Khenchen Rinpoche has outlined. Sponsorship Categories are being developed now and will soon be posted. Anyone donating to the Palyul Dallas Land and Temple project will have his or her name recorded on a scroll which will be blessed by Rinpoche and ceremoniously embedded in the permanent foundational structure of the Palyul Temple itself.
Make Regular Monthly Donations
Ongoing monthly contributions help form a base from which we keep the center running with office supplies and equipment, shrine room offerings such as flowers, candles, incense, and tsog foods, rent, insurance, in house maintenance, printed materials such as texts, advertising, teaching cd’s, and in the now every other month teaching programs and special events with our teachers Khenchen Guru Rinpoche and Khenpo Norgay Rinpoche, and with the arrival of our soon to be Resident Lama, Lopon Pasang Tenzin.
Donate to the Namdroling Hospital “Special Request” Fund
An urgent need for medical equipment has arisen at the Palyul Namdroling Monastery Hospital in Bylakuppe India. This hospital was one of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche’s extraordinary efforts to benefit all sentient beings and is a major source of medical help at Monastery and in surrounding cities and towns near Bylakuppe. Khenchen Rinpoche has asked that we do whatever we can to help.
We are collecting money now to make a group donation in one lump sum. Your contribution check of any size can be mailed to PCD Dallas, P.O. BOX 836408, Richardson, TX 75083-6408.
