The teachings are given freely according to the practice of dāna. “Dāna” is a Sanskrit and Pali word meaning “generosity” or “giving,” and is always discretionary. Through our cultivation of dāna, we leave habitual states of mental poverty behind and steadily grow a reality of psychological, spiritual and thus material richness. By practicing with a healthy spirit of generosity, we deepen our own practice and support teachers to make these healing teachings and tools available to all. By offering material and other kinds of dāna with an open heart, everyone benefits, particularly the giver.
