Offering Dana

Offering Teacher Dana

Dana is a Pali and Sanskrit 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.

Dharma teachings are traditionally offered on the basis of dana which is offered to a teacher in recognition of the precious gift that has been given. When dana is offered, tendrel or “auspicious interdependence” is created between the teacher and the student. Most teachers dedicate their lives to teaching and often have no other source of income. Some donate all of their dana to Dharma activities.

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!
