Offering Dana

Offering Teacher Dana

Dana (pronounced “dah-na”) is a Pali word meaning generosity. Dating back to the time of the Buddha, there has always existed an interdependence between those who offer the teachings and those who receive them.

According to the Buddha, generosity, or sharing what we have, is one of the central practices of a spiritual life. In the act of giving, we develop our ability to let go of attachment, cultivate an attitude of open sharing, and acknowledge the inter-connectedness of all beings. The Buddha taught the practice of Dana whereby those who share the teachings are dependent on those who receive them. It is the practice of Dana that has kept the Buddhist tradition alive for more than 2,600 years in Asia, where committed supporters have given generously to establish monasteries and retreat centers and providing for teachers and practitioners. At Tara Mandala we carry on this joyful tradition in the form of inviting donations from the community to our precious teachers, so that teachers can continue to offer the Dharma. Although the value of the teachings is immeasurably precious, we make our offerings as generous as possible while respecting our own financial well being.

Please follow the PayPal links below to make your offerings which can also include a message to the teacher. Thank you for joining Tara Mandala in supporting our wonderful teachers!
