Dāna, the Pali word for generosity, is a foundation of the dhamma as everything else rests on this spirit of care and support. It's integral to compassion and spiritual friendship and is interwoven into the wisdom of non-grasping and letting go.
Generosity is an ongoing practice for all of us. As this quality is developed and reflected on, it brightens the mind and opens the heart.

Many teachers have committed to offering their teachings on a dāna basis, meaning they do not charge for the teachings and are dependent on the generosity of others.
