Now that we have chosen the companies that committed to a firm quotation, we know that the total amount of the project will be 1.8 million euros.
Karma Migyur Ling has a reserve fund that had already been allocated for this project, which makes it possible to consider financing part of the building up to 1 million euros. This amount will not be impacted by the health situation, which weighs heavily on the year's budget.
Since the beginning, the Centre was built largely thanks to the members’ offerings. Therefore, as we have done for so many years, we are appealing to the generosity of all, which has never been lacking until now. All contributions, even the most modest, will be welcome to help finance this project, which will offer great prospects for future Dharma practice. Thus, the Centre keeps supporting the accumulation of merits through the paramita (perfection) of generosity. Thank you in advance to all those who will help us financially! It will also be possible to use bank or personal loans if necessary, to complete the financing.
Support the new building project
If you wish, you can make a donation, whatever the amount, to the Karma Migyur Ling Congregation, which is responsible for and guarantor of the project.
You can choose to contribute:
1) with a one-time donation, by credit card or cash addressed to "Congrégation Karma Migyur Ling" or CKML.
2) with a regular donation,made monthly or quarterly (at your convenience). For donors, the donation is spread over the year in small instalments. For the Centre, all these payments represent a significant volume and predictable income. This can be done in a simple way, by regular Bank transfers to the Centre Bank account, at:
To: Congregation Karma Migyur Ling
8900 Route de Montchardon – 38160 Izeron – France
IBAN: FR07 3000 2042 3600 0007 9318 Y73
You can suspend these operations at any time.
Here is how we will organize ourselves.
For places of worship such as Montchardon, the rules set by the State are as follows:
If you are unable or unwilling to follow these guidelines, we ask that you do not come to the Centre while these rules are in effect. The same applies, of course, if you are ill or have symptoms of the virus.
It is essential to protect Lama Teunsang whose immunity is compromised, making him extremely vulnerable to infection, and the people at the centre are in daily contact with him for meals and care. This also means that it is not appropriate to return to Lama Teunsang's home to greet him. For the compelling reasons mentioned above, he currently only receives those who care for his health.
No offering of kata to Lama Teunsang
It is asked to stay away from him, at least 1m and not to offer him a kata.
This use, so much appreciated by all of us, is currently suspended during the Covid period, to preserve its still fragile health.
Individual interview with Lama Teunsang
We asked Lama Teunsang about personal interviews. He does not wish to resume them for the time being. We will inform you of their resumption when he tells us so.
However, it is possible to request an interview with one of the Lamas of Montchardon. See with the translator.
Access to the temple will be limited to 80 people to respect sanitary distances. For accommodation, the rooms with several people will become individual accommodation, except for couples or families. The number of dormitory places will be reduced to space between beds. We will thus be able to accommodate about 80 people. The campsite will be open, the installation of the tents will have to follow the same instructions. We will have disinfecting liquids in all the places where it is necessary.
We would like to remind you:
As Buddhist practitioners, the constraints of masks, social distances and frequent hand washing can be integrated into our practice, as a constant training for vigilance and support of attention in our daily actions. It is also a great opportunity to practice the awakening mind, the altruistic attitude: "I commit myself to make this effort, thinking more about the well-being and health of others than about my own inconvenience". These are the skillful means of Dharma called " integrating unpleasantness into the path ".
