Dana (generosity) Practice
In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; in the Buddhist tradition we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Your generosity is a gift that supports not just the teachers, but also the Sangha, the larger Dharma community, and your own practice.
The practice of giving is an essential element of our Awakening process, as it displays a sense of gratitude and appreciation towards others. The act of giving allows us to cultivate a spirit of caring, letting go, and acknowledge the inter-connectedness and inter-dependence in which we are all bound.
A donation of what you are in the spirit of giving and capable without any harm to yourself is requested but not necessary, it will be payment enough for you to just Show-Up and share in this practice. All proceeds are used for basic operating expenses of this Sangha. All are welcome, regardless of ability to offer a donation.
