Donation Opportunities:
As you know there are costs incurred when inviting Rinpoches and Lamas to a Centre…….If you are interested in sponsoring ahead of time any part of this event, please let us know.
Here is where your donations and generosity will help:
1. Collective teaching gift from our Centre for Tulku-la and his translator who will be translating via skype
2. Travel costs for Tulku-la
3. Groceries and other supplies for the dharma house while he is in town
4. Any miscellaneous costs incurred during his visit – ie. flowers, liturgy, empowerment supplies, etc.
To clarify how donations are handled, we would like you to know that any offerings given to the Lama directly or at empowerments are not taken into account for the above expenses.

Hosting a meal:

We have opportunities for people to take Tulku-la out for a meal or offer a ready made meal at the Dharma House…or simply provide frozen meals that can be served to him any time.

If you are interested, here are the days and slots available:
· Wednesday October 18th – Lunch & dinner
· Thursday October 19th – Lunch & dinner
· Friday October 20th- Lunch & dinner
· Saturday October 21st – Dinner
· Sunday October 22nd – Lunch

Lunch times are usually from 11:30 to 1:30pm at the latest so that he can rest up in the afternoon before interviews.
Dinners are usually a little tighter in terms of time, especially, if he has a teaching at nite, probably better to serve him a ready to eat meal at the Centre.
He should be finished eating or back at the Centre by 6:30-6:45pm for a 7pm teaching.
*Please note: If you are taking him out for your first time, we would be happy to have someone accompany Tulku-la if you like.

Interview opportunities:
We will have interview opportunities October 19th and 20th from 3:00 – 4:30pm for those who would like to have a private interview with Tulkudawa. There will be a sign up sheet at the Centre.

Karma Yoga Opportunities:
If you are interested in helping with Tulkudawa’s visit, please come and join us on Sunday Oct 15th at 10am to prepare the house and finalize details.
