May your generosity support your heart in happiness and knowing its own abundance.

What is Dana?  

 

Pronounced “DAH-nuh,”this Sanskrit/Pali noun translates to practicing generosity by giving a gift of materials, time, energy, or wisdom (dharma) to others.  It is the first of the Ten Paramis (the Ten Perfection of the Heart Practices) and regarded as one of the most important virtues to cultivate.

Not surprisingly, scientific studies support a link between (targeted) generosity and happiness, physical and emotional health, and reduction in anxiety.

Here are some excellent articles on dana as a cultivation 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."  - From  DharmaWisdom.org
