Dear Vajra siblings,
one of the three sacred principles of our practice is taking Refuge and Bodhicitta.
One way of taking Refuge to say:
„I take Refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha”
„Buddha“ can be understood as “the symbol for the unification of all our Masters”.
„Dharma“ can be understood as „the Words and all the support of our Masters that lead us out of suffering“.
„Sangha“ can be understood as „the fellow practitioners and protectors who support us with positive circumstances in order to follow the Path“.
„Sangha“ is based on collaboration, respect, clarity and understanding.
Adriano Clemente, Elio Guarisco and Jim Valby are very good examples for what could be understood as „Sangha“.
They have dedicated their time, energy and knowledge for many decades in order to translate „Dharma“ – the Teachings of the Masters – for all us us who are missing the capacity to understand these texts in the original language, in Tibetan.
As being the project manager of the translation projects „Ka-Ter“ and „Complete Works of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu“ I have dedicated myself for more than 10 years to collect funds for these two translation projects, so that the translators can continue their precious work without hindrances.
Thank to YOUR generous support I was able to collect enough funds up to now.
For this year there is still missing the amount of 25.000 Euro.
So let us too become a good example for what could be understood as „Sangha“!
Let us collaborate and support the work of our marvelous translators!
Please send us your DONATION for these crucial projects.
