Dear Sangha, dear friends and sponsors,

At the moment we urgently and primarily need your support for Creation of a translator fund of the association (project 1).

We also ask for the support of the association in the financing of a uniform web presence of the centres (project 3).

We wish everyone a wonderful summer!
Horst Rauprich, 1. chairman of the Karma Kagyu Community Germany registered association

Project 1: Translation Fund

Bridging the gap between the Tibetan Buddhist wisdom tradition and its roots in the West is the great task that the Kamalashila Institute has set itself in the German-speaking world. It is essential for the teaching and a deeper understanding of the teachings and exercises that the Tibetan texts are available in the German language.

„In order for the Dharma to take root completely in any language or culture, there is initially a need for accurate translations, … The personal transmission (from the realized master to the disciple) … is, however, the heart of living Buddhist teachings.“  Dzogchen Pönlop Rinpoche 1992

Both the written translation and, above all, the interpretation of the lectures and teachings of the masters and teachers are not possible without qualified translators. Our great masters would be so to speak speechless without these translators. Therefore, the Karma Kagyu Community Germany e.V. would like to create a fund for the financing of the translators of the association, for their training and further education and for translation projects as well as their publication.

We ask the large circle of our members, interested parties, sponsors, friends and the numerous practitioners of the Tibetan Buddhist traditions to participate in this project with regular donations. If each of you would donate 10 € per month, we could systematically promote translating and train translators. But also individual donations help us further. Join us!

Project 2: Support for the Karma Tekchen Retreat Centre Yi Ong Ling, Halscheid (Fundraising campaign successfully completed!)

Thanks to your generous support the sum of 5.100 € has been raised! Now the Klausurzentrum Karma Tekchen Yi Ong Ling in Windeck-Halscheid has financial freedom for current projects.

The collection of donations is now complete. We thank all donors from the bottom of our hearts for their help!

Project 3: Multisite appearance of the centres

The degree of recognition of the centers and the recognizability of their membership in the Karma Kagyu Community Germany are usually low. Who e.g. in Hamburg knows the TTC? The reason: The possibilities of the centres in the IT sector are limited in terms of finances, personnel and knowledge. Our common goal is to improve this situation through a multi-site that is centrally hosted, maintained and further developed on a server. Effort and costs for support and service would be minimized for the centres, a uniform „frame design“ makes the togetherness visible without taking the centres‘ own profile, the modern web presence makes them more attractive, offers improved organisational possibilities for announcements and information and would facilitate networking of the sangha. And much more.

The construction of an individual website on the basis of the multisite would cost 1.000 € once. However, most centres cannot afford this. We would like to make this possible for the centres through donations. We need 9.000 €. Please support this project.
