Ogminio gUG (haftungsbeschränkt)

Dear vajra brothers and sisters,

after careful deliberation and consulting with Rinpoche I am saddened to inform you about a change that may or may not affect or concern you.

Rinpoche’s teachings and the practice counter at Dharma.online will still be available, so your practice should not be affected at all.

Dharma-eLearning.ru, the temporary backup site for Dharma-eLearning.net, will become unavailable shortly. As mentioned previously all video content is available through dupseng.org (or contact Rinpoche's secretary). The 'modules' will be made available elsewhere, if you are currently using them, or have other questions, simply respond to this message.

Thank you for reading this.

After five years back in Berlin I have to admit defeat and concede that it is not possible for me to develop Ogminio and its activities into anything justifying the efforts and costs incurred by keeping the legal infrastructure alive.

Since I had founded Ogminio gUG in 2019 as a means to continue my previous digital Dharma activities for Rinpoche it has been a registered non-profit and tax exempt under German and EU laws (so donations are potentially tax deductable for the donors). However the cost for the minimum legal and tax activities to meet regulatory requirements alone have far exceeded the donations received during that period.

While there was a benfit generated by running Dharma-eLearning and the social mantra counter on http://Dharma.online, the cost/benefit ratio doesn’t feel justifiable in the long run, especially since I didn’t have sufficient conditions to expand the activities and put any further ideas into practice, being hardly able to keep up with the efforts required for the things Ogminio did do.

So it is with a heavy heart that I am informing you today that Ogminio will cease operating at the end of this year. Both the contents on Dharma-eLearning and the mantra counter will continue to be accessible, so there shouldn’t be much of a loss for your practice.

If you have been making ongoing donations, please cancel your payments anytime between now and the end of the year.

If you need an official tax receipt for your donations, kindly let me know and you will of course get one.

Having said all this, if you are interested in (or know someone who might be interested in) developing activities along the same lines as Ogminio and are looking for a legal non-profit entity in Germany, also contact me, so instead of closing it, I can hand it over and it can continue do benefit beings in some way.

If nothing comes of this I plan to cease operations at the end of this year and dissolve Ogminio.

Thank you for being a part of these activities, not just for the past five years but for the past ten years, ever since the first initiative was conceived during the first Mahakala course at KIBS in 2013. I am sure that we will continue to meet and practice together in the future.

All the best wishes to you and all beings, may your practice and beneficial activities flourish and grow!

May all be auspicious!

Cheers & smiles, Kai ‘Jinpa’ Roloff.
