I want to help a Dharma/Charity organisation via a donation of:
ROKPA is committed to help where humanitarian aid is particularly difficult, but nevertheless absolutely essential. ROKPA's work focuses primarily on education, medicine and nutrition / cost of living.
Teaching people to sustain themselves is ROKPA's major concern. They know that education is the most effective way to help poor people escape poverty and protect themselves from exploitation and abuse. That's why ROKPA prepares disadvantaged children and adults for a life they can take in hand with their training projects.
In Buddhism, prostration is a way of showing veneration for the Three Jewels (including the Buddha, his teachings (the Dharma), and the spiritual community (the Sangha)) and sometimes also other objects of veneration.
For Buddhist practitioners, prostration has multiple, overlapping benefits including :
an experience of giving or veneration
an act to purify oneself from filth, especially vanity.
a preparatory act for meditation
an act that accumulates merits
In some practices, such as the Ngöndro, each prostration is performed simultaneously with the recitation of a prayer and a visualisation (e.g. the tree of refuge of his practice lineage).
