Support Gomde California in 2020






"Our Gomdes and Dharma Houses are laying the foundation of the Dharma in many different places all over the world. They will bring benefit to many future generations. I would like to ask all of you to give your help to make sure that our dharma centers do not decline, but rather continue to flourish. This brings benefit for all of you. However, the benefit is not just for us now; it is an investment for future generations. Please take the responsibility to ensure that our centers continue to flourish." — Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche

With the postponement of most of our onsite programming in 2020, your financial support will help us meet our total minimum annual expenses of $240,000. This number represents the estimated cost of simply maintaining our sacred practice land and retreat center—covering insurance, total utilities, yearly minimum maintenance work, ordained and staff wages, and the continuation of Gomde's daily activities of study, practice, translation, and retreat. Any surplus in donations will be directly applied to larger improvements on the Buddha Hall, housing facilities, and teaching infrastructure.

En route to meeting our expected minimum expenditures for 2020, if 108 donors each offer $108 per month, we can secure an annual total of $139,968 in monthly donations. Your commitment will help provide a more reliable foundation for fulfilling Gomde's core mission: to uphold, provide, and protect the authentic Dharma in the West. Therefore, please consider supporting Gomde California as a “Pillar” monthly donor, or a recurring donor of another amount. 

You can also donate in honor or memory of your loved ones. To add a loved one to our prayer list for those who are ill or have recently passed, feel free to leave a name and message in the comments section.
