Dana: Nurturing the Heart through Generosity
I follow the ancient Buddhist tradition of “dana,” offering the teachings at no charge.
They are priceless, given freely in the hope they will bring peace and wisdom to all.
This provides an opportunity for those who benefit from these resources to cultivate their own generosity, by making donations to keep these offerings available.
Buddha said generosity benefits us before we give, by making the mind happy, while we give, by making the mind peaceful, and afterward, when the mind is uplifted. (AN 3.6.37) Practicing dana has long been considered a prelude to meditation, to help the sitting begin with a tranquil mind.
