Offering Dana

Offering Teacher Dana

Dana is a Pali word meaning “generosity.” As one of the six paramitas or “perfections,” the practice of generosity is an integral part of the Buddhist path. Dharma teachings are traditionally offered on the basis of dana

The teachers and Kalyanamitras for our programs and retreats offer their time and teaching, and are not paid. They are only financially compensated by what participants offer as Dana. Dana is a traditional practice of generosity in Tibetan Buddhism through which a tendril or “auspicious interdependence” is created between the teacher and the student.  There is opportunity to give Dana at the end of each retreat. As many people today, use credit cards, we have created this page to provide more ease in the dana process.

Below there is a form that will allow you to give to our Resident Lama, Lama Tsultrim Allione, and Resident Teachers from Bhutan, Drubpön Lama Karma, and Khandro Tsering Drolkar.
