Sponsorship

11th International Tipitaka Chanting Ceremony (Bodhgaya, India, December 2nd-13th 2015)


All dana sponsorship is done in front of the Sangha on the day that you host. Individuals or Sangha groups may sponsor together to host this meritorious offering. $10,000 covers the cost of 18 dishes (9 International, 9 Indian) for up to 4,600 participants (daily numbers vary) to make the food offering possible. This means that each meal costs $2.16 for breakfast and lunch, which includes the cost of the tent, service staff, food ingredients, and other rentals. All donations are given in front of the Sangha from the direct lay devotee to the Chief Organiser. No other fundraising organization is allowed to raise funds on behalf of ITCC unless directly authorized by a council member. Fundraising done in the name of ITCC without permission is a direct offense of the organization and the good will and merit of these offerings. Receipts will be given by the ITCC and signed by the Chief Organizer once the funds are distributed in front of the witness of the Sangha. If you should know of anyone who is soliciting funds in the name of ITCC who is not authorized by ITCC, please inform the Council at lbdfiorg@gmail.com.

Hosting Dates need to be reserved no later than September 2015. Please send your intentions lbdfiorg@gmail.com in advance.
