Generosity: Dana and the Art of Giving

The custom of Dana, or generosity, set forth by the Buddha, is a compassionate, ethical practice based in the realization of interconnectedness, and a way that you can support a teacher and community of practice in sustaining the realization of Truth.

The exquisite paradox in Buddhism is that the more we give – and the more we give without seeking something in return – the wealthier (in the broadest sense of the word) we will become. By giving we destroy those acquisitive impulses that ultimately lead to further suffering.

We are a 501(c) 3 tax exempt religious organization. Donations made to us can be credited by the IRS as a donation and you may receive a deduction in your taxes.

Please support our work through your generosity. Your donations are a way that you can ensure the continuation of the work and practice of the Mt. Adams Zen Buddhist Temple.
