:woohoo:
Wow, not even a day and we are almost there! Great work everyone!

With all the bad news we hear all the time, it's really heartening to see positive actions like this when we can come together to look after each other.

That right people, only 30euro left of the "official" costs: seminar, food and lodging and transport to and from Thessaloniki from where I live.

There are other "unofficial" costs too: transport to the retreat centre, buses to and from the airport, tsok offerings, etc... so if anybody wishes to help out it will be appreciated.

I have to say that I am overwhelmed by peoples response to my needs.

I admit I was not all that hopeful and was sure that I would miss out on the seminar (and miss out on the opportunity to follow the next 6 years of the program).

I sincerely hope that anything I learn/gain from the retreat I will be able to use for the benefit of the members of Dharma Wheel to repay them all for their kindness.

Thank you all yet again! :bow:

Sorry to be dense, but I still can't figure out how to contribute. Can some one give instructions a 4 year old could follow, please?

Well, that's it people! Thanks to your generosity my costs for the retreat have been covered (and then some!).

Thank you to everybody for their help. May the merit gained from your generosity be the means for the liberation of all sentient beings!

Greg,

I am so happy that you are now able to go on the retreat!
A foolish man proclaims his qualifications,
A wise man keeps them secret within.
A straw floats on the surface of water,
But a precious gem placed upon it sinks to the depths

Greg,

I'm so thrilled that you won't have to miss out on your retreat. That's great news - when do you go?

June 29th to the July 9th so if anybody wants to cause trouble here at Dharma Wheel, without me knowing, that would be the best time to do it! :tongue:
