Dana is integral to Buddhist practice. It is one of the three pillars of Dana (generosity), Sila (virtue), Bhavana (mental cultivation). All three of these aspects need to be perfected for the heart to awaken and see clearly. Perfecting just one aspect would be like having a stool with one leg – it cannot stand up. Perfecting just two will be like a stool with two legs it is still not stable but a stool that has three legs can stay upright, awake and bear the weight of the world.
We are grateful to everyone who has generously offered Dana as part of their practice. If you would like to make a donation please follow the links below.
