11th International Tipitaka Chanting Ceremony (Bodhgaya, India, December 2nd-13th 2015)
All dana sponsorship is done in front of the Sangha on the day that you host. Individuals or Sangha groups may sponsor together to host this meritorious offering. $10,000 covers the cost of 18 dishes (International and Indian) for as many as 4,600 participants to make the food offering possible for breakfast and lunch. This means that each meal costs $2.17 for breakfast and lunch per person. All donations are given in front of the Sangha from the direct lay devotee to the Chief Organiser. All left-over food stuffs will be given to the local Viharas as an offering. No other fundraising is allowed on behalf of ITCC unless directly authorized and given permission. Fundraising done in the name of ITCC without permission is a direct offense of the organization and the good will and merit of these offerings. Receipts will be given by the ITCC and signed by the Chief Organiser once the funds are distributed in front of the witness of the Sangha. If you should know of anyone who is soliciting funds in the name of ITCC who is not authorized by ITCC, please inform the Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hosting Dates need to be reserved no later than October 2015. Please send your intentions email@example.com in advance.
