Actually, all this energy, this feeling of oneness, comes from the devoted people who give us donations. We are responsible to utilize their offerings in the wisest way, in the way that brings maximum benefit to others. That is why, in a place where there are many hundreds of people involved, we are responsible to use their lives in a worthwhile way and not waste their time.Lama Thubten Yeshe Founder of the FPMT
The center is the fruit of ongoing effort and time given by many volunteers, who have a common mission: to offer the Dharma – a place for study, contemplation and meditation. The center as such is a non-profit organisation based solely on volunteer work. We want to make the Dharma accessible and available to everyone. However, there are many costs incurred with running the center. Therefore from the beginning of February, 2017 a new payment system for Tuesday and Thursday evening classes will be introduced, which is part of a wider strategy to secure the center’s long-term economy and sustainability so that we can continue to offer classes for a long time to come.
If you are new to the center, your first visit on a Tuesday or Thursday evening is free and after that you pay per evening or buy a five or ten class card.
With the cards you obtain significant discount:
First time – Free
Single class – 75 kr. *
5-class card – 300 kr. **
10-class card – 450 kr. **
The five and ten class cards are personal and cannot be shared. You can buy the cards at the entrance when attending classes in the center. Cash and Mobile Pay are accepted. Unfortunately we do not accept credit cards.
The class cards are valid for Tuesday and Thursday evening classes only. All other events have to paid for separately.
* Membership required: due to legal requirements one must become a member of the center in order to pay for single evening classes. The membership fee is a single payment of 250 kr. per year.
** Membership required and included: due to legal requirements one must become a member of the center in order to buy the five or ten class cards. The membership fee is 250 kr. annually, and the first time you buy the five or ten class cards, the membership is included without extra cost.
In addition to the support for the evenings our finances also depend on donations from members. Many members choose to also support in this way and donations to the center are tax-deductible. You can see more about how to donate to the center here.
