On Dāna and Dhamma Economy
Appamāda Association is sustained and operates on the basis of generosity (Dāna) and gratitude (Kataññu).
All activities of the Association are free of charge. They are possible thanks to the gratitude and generosity of Appamāda and Gilad House in the past and present – whether in energy, time, money, capabilities or other recourses.
Dāna, generosity, is one of the cornerstones of the Buddhist path, and an essential facet of a worthy human existence in general. Regrettably, as a result of a variety of circumstances, a common misconception in the West is that dāna means ‘no set amount for a donation.’ Consequently, the act of dāna is often translated to mean ‘how much should I give so that I don’t feel uncomfortable?’ Such a process is harmful to us all.
Those who are interested, can choose to support the Appamāda Association through financial giving or other means out of gratitude and good intentions. There is no need to see this giving as ‘payment’ for the activity you took part in, and there is no ‘recommended amount’ that you should meet.
This ‘Dhamma Economy’ is different from the economic system we are used to. When you come to the meetings to listen to the Dhamma, you enjoy the fruits of the giving and effort of others who intended just that. And if you decide that you want to support the activities of the association, your giving will allow others to take part in the activities in the future. Dāna and Kataññu keep Appamāda Association functioning, and it is thanks to them that the Buddhist path has flourished for over 2600 years.
