The trust relies exclusively on donations for its upkeep and membership is one way of ensuring a regular supply of funds to facilitate this.
The benefits of becoming a member include being able to borrow books from the library and use the gompa (with some sensitivity towards Erin whom lives there) for your own practice.
Suggested membership fee is starting at $20 a month If you can manage more then you can be rest assured that this is going towards a good cause and you have the opportunity to accumulate much merit!
This is run under a charitable trust so you will be eligible to receive tax back at the end of the year on your monthly donations.
