Your Generousity

Awakening Truth has adopted the practice of “Dana” (Donation) as both a spiritual practice and a practical way to meet the financial needs of the learning center. Dana is a Pali word for generosity. Throughout Buddhist history, spiritual teachings have been offered to people free of charge. In turn those receiving the teachings have supported the monastics and lay teachers as best as they could – completing the cycle of giving and receiving. In this way the teachers, students, and centers were protected by the spirit of generosity.
