Terms for Support of Gompa
1. The Facility
1.1 This facility is referred to on our site as 'member support'. (Also, as 'joining Gompa' and 'become a member-supporter'.)
1.2 This facility accepts donations made in support of the public service mission of Gompa Tibetan Monastery Services. (Optional donations to a partner monastery or nunnery can also be specified as part of the same transaction.)
1.3 Your member support donations support the aspiration of the senior lamas of all traditions to make online services available for the major Tibetan monasteries and nunneries in India and Nepal.
1.4 Donations must be of at least a minimum amount. The minimum amount is listed on the site at the appropriate places. For UK residents, VAT is applicable on just the annual minimum donation amount in support of TMS.
1.5 It is our intention to provide certain gratis benefits and facilities to account holders who are member supporters in current standing. These gratis benefits may be offered from time to time on a provisional basis, and may change or cease at any time. You acknowledge that TMS has neither promised nor warranted to provide any services or benefits or facilities to you in respect of your member support donation(s). The provisional gratis benefits and facilities which we intend to offer to current member supporters are as follows:a) no-fee access to special events for online viewing and/or for making donations and dedications;
b) no-fee booking of sponsored prayers and rituals (fees for media and special requests/services apply);
c) access to the facility for no-fee transfer of donations to Sangha, including donations in support of the community social welfare projects of the monasteries and nunneries;
d) on-demand access to past event webcasts in the library for online viewing and/or for making donations and dedications.
