Donating to any Tibetan organization, monastery or centre is solely intended for the Tibetan refugee and the Lama that teaches there or the set of monks that are caring for the place, but only the Tibetan monks.
The grants and donations that His Holiness the Dalai Lama has worked for so long is asked for the Tibetans NOT for Western monks. He accepts donations and works hard to teach everywhere he can or where he is invited as the other lamas do, and once you attend a centre it is not to be used for monks born in the West.
The other problem that the Tibet centres have is they are being run by Westerners not only Tibetans and that is insulting to the grant writer that sweats to get a grant and it never says that it is funding Westerners.
The centres are not supposed to invite any westerner to the land because it inhibits the practice of the puja and the mantra damages roots and earth that belong to the DNA of the indigenous of our people, the Muni, the Mapuche and the Inque, because they change our native american mantra of one syllable ‘HO’. The Tibetans study and practice tantras and the native american practice mantra, so they are hurting already our future prospects for our lands. No western scholar or western monk or nun is permitted to be on refugee status ground teaching in the place of a Tibetan who is here only to promote their refugees and look for financial help because the world could not sanction China enough for threatening, killing and removing Tibetans, their animals and flora from a land that was never meant for China.
