The Inner-Connection: Milarepa Center Exists for You, Because of You.

No one person makes Milarepa Center function. We all do. When the sangha, the community of Milarepa Center is strong, so is the Dharma. When the Dharma is strong, the Buddha is more than an just idea, but a living experience at Milarepa Center. This is only possible through the inner-connection we share and your kindness.

In Lama Zopa Rinpoche's recent advice to Milarepa leadership, we learned that generosity, made with the wish to benefit others, is the cause of enlightenment.

Your generosity to Milarepa Center is also the generosity of so many others. It's very beautiful. Giving to Milarepa Center becomes a meditation, a form of practice, and a path to enlightenment when you deeply look into the inner-connectedness.

The money you are giving to Milarepa was received due to the kindness of others. The dollar in your hand is not just your dollar, but once belonged to so many different people. Because of their generosity, it is now your dollar. Now, when you give to Milarepa Center, so many other people are also receiving the merit of giving, because of the inner-connection shared. By giving with this motivation, you are creating a cause of full awakening not just for yourself, but for each individual connected to your dollar. It is truly rare and precious to be able to make offerings of this nature. The reason this act is possible is because of Milarepa Center.
