Membership Policy

The Kathok Meditation Society has no membership dues and in order to ensure the continuity of the guidance of the lineage we adhere to the following principles for membership applications:

1. A member should have taken refuge from a lama in our tradition and have fully maintained samaya with any previous lamas to whom they have made a commitment

2. A member should continuously demonstrate their devotion to Guru Yoga by active service to the Centre.

3. Having fulfilled the above conditions a practitioner may apply for membership in the Society. 

Essentially, these are the basic rules of behavior that members must follow:

1. They must be completely devout and believe in of the heritage of, the Buddha, dharma, sangha and the continuity of the lineage and be devoted to the lineage master.

2. They must have a pure and unsullied samaya with any previous lamas with who they have had a relationship.

3. As brothers and sisters sharing one mandala, they must be sincere and friendly to each other, maintaining their vajra vows and regarding each other with a pure view.

4. They should have sincere compassion and be helpful as much as possible to all sentient beings! Membership is not recommended if you cannot follow the above basic samaya.
