What's it about?

GIVING-CHALLENGE-WEEK

One of the most important teachings in Buddhism to be appied in day-to-day life is the teaching of the SIX PARAMITAS. As a matter of fact it is not necessarily a Buddhist practice - it is a few wisdoms that we can integrate into our every-day-doings.
We installed a PRACTICE GROUP on FACEBOOK where people from all over the world have joined to practice together. http://wisdom-in-action.com
The first one of these six wisdoms is GIVING or GENEROSITY. It might be the easiest to practice because when we give we give. Practicing the other 5 is more complicated:
Morality, Patience, Diligence, Meditation, Wisdom ...

So this fundraising project is about the PRACTICE OF GIVING.
We will present a project each day that is making a difference in the world and that you can simply and easily give ONE EURO to. So if you can afford to spend 6€ over the course of the week, please participate and by doing so you will practice your own generosity & kindness and have the experience of contributing to a better world each day.
Here is the SCHEDULE:
1. (MO) - RIGUL TRUST (Ringu Tulku's project in Kham, Easter Tibet)
2. (TUE) - NAI ROSHNI (Education for girls from the slums of Lucknow, India)
3. (WED) - ROKPA (Projects in the Himalaya regions - founded by Akong Rinpoche, endorsed by H.H. the 17th KARMAPA)
4. (THUR) - SEA-EYE (saving lives in the mediterranean sea)
5. (FRI) - JEEWAN UTTHAN CHILDREN'S HOME, Pharping, Nepal
6. (SAT) - Building Bodhicharya Berlin (Temple or Stupa)
7. (SUN) - Reflection

Your contribution given to this FUNDRAISING EVENT we will distribute evenly to all 6 projects.
If you want give to one of the six project specifically - please give it to the project directly.

All projects will be presented by films and are supported by CONSCIOUS ACTION NETWORK - a project inspired and supported by H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, and Ringu Tulku Rinpoche. Your contribution will go via betterplace directly to the project.
Of course you can also contribute more than 1€ - but the point is to PRACTICE GIVING and for most of us 1€ is an amount the we can give without having to worry that we will miss it tomorrow.
Please DO NOT give an amount that would make you feel uncomfortable!

Thank you to all who participate. May all benefit.

I use betterplace.org because:
Donating on betterplace.org is straightforward and secure. Afterwards I pass the money we’ve raised on to the relevant aid projects.
