Here are some helpful resources on how to get the most out of your money and develop that philanthropic spirit to fill up your Dharma Piggy bank!

A  NEW  ALTAR  FOR  EMAHO'S TEMPLE

With great appreciation for the generosity of the friends of Emaho, we thank everyone who donated to support our planned traditional Buddhist altar. As of October 30, 2010, we reached our goal of $9,000.

In order to support the sangha and community in their spiritual practice, ZaChoeje  Rinpoche has begun to design a traditional Tibetan Buddhist altar for Emaho's temple. A Buddhist altar holds symbols of enlightened body, speech and mind, represented by a statue of Buddha Shakyamuni, a scripture and a stupa. These symbols are reflections of our own enlightened potential. They inspire us to develop the  qualities of faith, love, compassion, devotion and wisdom in ourselves so that we can fully benefit all sentient beings. Buddhist texts state that by doing prayers, chanting,and offering flowers and incense in front of Buddha and Deity statues we receive blessings, new strength and courage for our spiritual path.

When Rinpoche was in Nepal, he saw many beautiful statues and stupas. He was especially drawn to the work of some of the local artists, whose work we will commission for a Buddha Shakyamuni statue and a stupa. The scriptures will be ordered from India. The estimated cost for the new altar with statue, scripture and stupa will be approximately $ 8000 - $ 9000.

Even making a small donation towards an altar, Buddha statues, or a stupa will bring great blessings to the individual. This is an opportunity for all of us to create great merit in our actions.

We appreciate  your support! Thank you!

10 Ways to Save $50 Per Month: The Art of Pinching a Penny Until It Screams
by: Kimberly A. Griffiths

1. Save up to 50% per month on convenience cleaner cloths by cutting them into half, i.e. dryer softener cloths, face cleanser cloths, etc.

Savings: $5 per month

2. Find more thoughtful gifts and buy when the item is on sale, shop for birthdays and holidays throughout the year not at the time of the events.

Savings: $10 per month

3. Bring your lunch to work once a week instead of eating out.

Savings: $7 x 4 weeks = $28 per month

4. Don’t go to the coffee shop on the weekends.

Savings: 2 visits @ $2 = $4 per week x 4 weeks = $16 per month

5. If you carry a balance on your credit card, and you’re only able to afford paying the minimum monthly amount, pay weekly installments instead of one monthly payment. For example, if you owe $100 per month, pay $25 per week. Because credit card companies accrue interest daily on your balance, paying only once a month is a huge detriment to your fiscal health.

Savings: $10 - $100 per month (or more!)

6. Instead of a family night out, consider having an old fashion picnic together or a bike ride. Curbing entertainment costs doesn’t mean curbing the fun.

Savings: $25+ per month

7. Spend a day cooking meals that can be frozen for later use for your family. Once a Month Cooking, a book by Mary Beth Lagerborg and Mimi Wilson, features grocery lists and recipes to prepare and freeze a month’s worth of food for you and your family. Not only are you able to purchase the food in bulk, this method prevents having to throw away any spoiled food.

Savings: $50+ per month

8. If you are a regular monthly book buyer, stop the habit and visit your library instead! If you insist on buying books, buy it used at your local store or online at merchants such as www.half.com or www.amazon.com. Even a better idea, how about selling the books you have that you don’t need!

Savings: $5 - 15 per month

9. Use less expensive gasoline. If you live in North America and have Internet access, you are able to search for the cheapest gas price in your neighborhood with Gas Buddy, www.gasbuddy.com.

Savings: $5 - 15 per month

10. Use two-for-one coupons when dining out; search for these in local newspapers, flyers, and in your “junk mail.” If you are a group of four or more people, consider buying dining certificates at Restaurant.com, www.restaurant.com. After choosing your city and state on the Website, you will be presented with a listing of restaurants vying for your dining dollar!

Savings: $5- $50 per month
