Suggested Donations for Tour Programs

All donations listed below are of suggested amounts per person. As much as the Bhikshus need to raise funds to support their refugee monatery in India, they wish to first and foremost inspire and inform the public of their Tibetan religion and culture.

If a coordinator believes that the public cannot provide the “suggested” amount, the coordinator should not let this stand in the way of the Bhikshus providing the programs. We gladly accept whichever amount is offered.

No one should be turned away if they do not wish to donate.

The following list of suggested donations indicates what the Bhikshus have been offered on previous tours. We hope that this serves as a guideline for your and your friends in deciding how much to ask of the public to contribute.
