His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama does not accept any fees for His teachings or public talks. Drol Kar Buddhist Centre (DKBC), the organising body of Vajra Sutra 2018 Melbourne, is a Not-for-Profit organisation and is totally run by volunteers. Ticket sales generated from the visit to Melbourne by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama are used to cover the costs of organising this visit. Should there be any profit after expenses, all monies will be distributed to a local charity - chosen by His Holiness and in accordance with His Holiness Dalai Lama’s wishes. A comprehensive Income and Expenditure statement will be available to review at your request, 10 days after the completion of this event, for a period of 30 days.
