A question for those of you in the know about Buddhist groups in Taiwan:
which of the following groups would you trust with your donations or volunteer aid:
1/the Dharma Drum Foundation (Fagushan)
2/the Buddhist Light organization (Foguangshan), run by the guy who has this temple complex in Gaoxiong County and likes showing off his picture with Al Gore
3/Ciji, the organization run by the tiny thin nun from Hualian who was recently involved in a medical malpractice suit but whose followers are always present at major disasters.
Are the above all frauds only interested in your money or do they do valuable work? If you know other local groups worth supporting, please let me know.
