Support the Light of the Path Retreat 2017

Without the causes and conditions of your amazing generosity, the Light of the Path Retreat couldn't happen! We rely on the altruism of benefactors who feel in their hearts the benefits of these precious teachings and contribute to ensuring that they are available. The registration fee covers only Blue Ridge Assembly's charge for room and board, plus a small facilities fee to help cover additional retreat costs. 

All other expenses relating to teachings, puja, sangha support, Rinpoche’s travel and lodging, can only be met in dependence on our donors.  You might be interested to know that the travel for Rinpoche and his entourage typically runs around $12,000, and the cost of their lodging and food will approach $20,000.< /p>

We couldn't hope to do this on our own -- the cost of hosting a month-long retreat for almost 300 people is well beyond our financial resources at Kadampa Center.  

Kadampa Center offers opportunities to support the retreat overall and/or to support sangha.

Wish Fulfilling Gem Offering ~ $5000

An important additional opportunity:

Sangha support: Without the conditions of your kind generosity, many sangha members would find the Light of the Path retreat beyond their means, or a tough stretch on their resources. All donations for sangha support will be pooled and divided evenly among all our registered ordained participants to help reduce their expenses. Sponsoring sangha to attend the Light of the Path Retreat is an amazing act of the perfection of generosity.

Wheel of Dharma Sangha Support ~ $108


Thanks to the kindness of our generous donors, it all becomes possible!
