If you'd like to become involved with the authentic Nyingma tradition, here in the West, and actually do something tangible and meaningful for others, then please: click this link.
One hundred percent of the money you donate to the Tibetan Aid Project goes into producing scriptures for distribution at the annual Nyingma World Peace Ceremony. I can say without hesitation, this is probably the biggest event in world Buddhism, and if you can't be there in person, you can still make your aspirations felt.
I believe it is important to understand that this is a program with a 40 year track record for scrupulous honesty and effectiveness. You are not paying for "administration," or to cover somebody's legal costs. You are not buying into an obscure flight of fancy. What you are doing is supporting, in a mature and wholesome fashion, the charitable operations of the real thing: the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism's lineage of enlightened masters.
Let there be no question of the reality. There is absolutely no question about the benefit. The Tibetan Aid Project delivers on the bottom line.
