Get a bunch of people initiated so they buy the mandatory books and DVDs.
Nothing is mandatory
. You can attend webcasts freely and buy nothing at all.
Now, if one is interested about deepening a certain teaching, one can buy books and booklets, DVD and CD, you name it. It depends on our interest.
Having such a wealth of material available, practically about any teaching, is just fantastic. Unless you are quite rich and can follow the lama everywhere, you'll find that having such amount of material to purchase is extremely useful.
