There are practitioners running around, trying to collect money from other practitioners, saying that your Sensei needs funds for a new temple, or that Sensei said that because of the severity of persecution, we are now taking the form of an christian underground church.
Do not fall for this trap. Your Sensei never said to collect funds for such causes. If somebody wants to donate to a good cause or an official project, and that comes from his heart, under special circumstances it might be allowed. Practitioners should not do it anyway. But never give money to those scammers, who under false pretext, try to bait you with their sweet promises.
Cultivation is something serious and sacred. We are not allowed to divert from the righteous path by even a bit. It would cause troubles and complicate things in the long run.
