What is Dāna?

Dāna is a word from the Buddhist scriptures in the Pali language meaning “giving” and it describes the practice of generosity that has kept the Buddha’s teachings alive for over 2600 years.

The Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Centre has been built on a foundation of dāna. Enormous amounts of voluntary work together with material donations have helped the Centre develop and enabled it provide support to a growing community of Dhamma practitioners.
