Dana or generosity in the Pali language comes from a 2500 year old tradition that considers teachings and supportive conditions that lead to an end suffering priceless.
Awakening Truth is a non-profit organization run entirely on kindness and generosity, sharing the Buddha’s teachings to live in compassion, joy, and peace. Items from all over the world and almost all of it written, edited or spoken by people who put the practice of meditation and the Dhamma at the core of their existence. Even more remarkable is that all of this is offered completely free.
But while the teachings of the Dhamma are priceless (hence the tradition of free distribution) the cost of printing and distributing the Dhamma is not. Fortunately, another Dhamma teaching is also at work, namely generosity, listed in the teachings as the first of the Ten Perfections. Generosity is given such a high priority in the perfections because it creates a basis for direct access to ones own goodness, making the rest of the spiritual path accessible and possible. Through large and small acts of generosity, Awakening Truth is able to offer teachings to everyone regarless of ability to pay.
