This new 2015 Membership structure will facilitate implementation of an important desire of Rinpoche’s, recently announced, that whenever possible, Dzogchen teachings will be free and can be followed by anyone, regardless of economic status.
Our Membership is still the fundamental commitment of “taking responsibility” and represents Tsegyalgar's lifeblood, allowing us to sustain Rinpoche's Dzogchen Teachings in North America.
Through Membership fee sharing, you contribute to the life of your Gar, your Ling, and the International Community. A certain portion of everyone’s Membership fee helps cover these annual expenses, as well as the cost of organizing programs and the creation and hosting of a whole schedule of events
FOR NEW MEMBERS - WELCOME!
For the first time in 2015, Tsegyalgar East is introducing a Welcome Status to all New Members (valid for 3 years). All new Members can select any of the available 3 Membership tiers and enjoy the same benefits (even though they do not have the rights and duties) of active Members. After 3 consecutive years of Welcome Status, new Members will be eligible to become active Members of the Tsegyalgar East Dzogchen Community and the International Community.
FOR LINGS - YOUR GAR CONTINUES TO SUPPORT YOU!
For all Members who are part of a Ling who want to share their Membership dues with their own Ling, it can now be done by selecting the name of your Ling of choice. As per IDC, 45% of your membership will go back to your Ling.
WE WANT TO THANK YOU!
No amount is too small. Membership helps sustain us as we work together to create a vibrant and supportive community that shares the great blessing of our Master's transmission.
With many thanks and Tashi Delegs, wishing all a HAPPY LOSAR!
