Meditation, a Matter of Safety?

SRCM UK, 5 periods

The Charitable Trust SRCM UK was established in June 1993. It's goal, always topical, is "the protection and preservation of public health through the practice of the Sahaj Marg system of meditation." No comments ... (4d-don said: building PRIVATE SCHOOLS in INDIA, 28 acre ranch in Texas (SPURS), castles in Europe, Commercial real estate and buildings in Europe, all for the wealthy, with donations from the poor from "the rest of the world")

Donations (contributions?) amounted to approximately 35 € per abhyasi for the 2 periods from 1 April 2001 to 31 March 2003, and then they increased by 4 fold, in the following two years (to over 150 € per abhyasi).

And then, the year 2005-6 was marked by a vast collection of funds for the acquisition of an ashram for Ireland and the United Kingdom, donations reaching € 1500 per abhyasi.

Donations can weigh that 37% of average turnover of SRCM UK, sales of publication are marginal (7%). Where does major part (essentials) therefore come from? Sales?

The average turnover of SRCM UK amounted to € 45-50 000 on the first 4 years, or 150 € per abhyasi. Expenditures for "the protection and preservation of public health" included the costs of seminars rentals, rooms, etc.. The capital of the association amounted to 50 to € 55 000, not counting the value of the Broomlee (Scotland) Ashram, apparently inadvertently dropped by the wayside.

The year 2005-6 saw a turnover and equity of the association multiplied by 12 fold, or about 500 000 € each.

The last 2 years, financial transfers to India, excluding donations for the tsunami, amounted to nearly 5000 € (15 € per abhyasi), which would mean that 10% of donations (from the UK) were for India (excluding exceptional contributions) .
