The passing out of yogart is not on a donation basis but it is a nice gesture. After you pay the enterance fees to the monastery then see that Budweiser has started to sponsor (I just read it) the Shoton, you may not feel the need to donate further!

Yes the Dalai Lama is diligent in his beliefs, and "others" are strong enough to overcome the blitz of big money but others are maybe 100 total. In the near future this will be nothing but a stage show. Soon like Mongolia... ask 10 Mongolians to say anything they know about Buddha- 0 for 10. 'dollar, euro, npo ngo' will be the new mantra. Oh I am funny sometimes.
