Dāna, generosity, is one of the cornerstones of the Buddhist path, and an important 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.
Generosity has many facets, and so too does the giving to Gilad House and to Appamāda. We always conclude our weekly announcements by mentioning that Gilad House is operated on the basis of dāna. And that is indeed the way it works. Bringing refreshments, helping with the tidying and cleaning, making a financial donation, offering people a friendly welcome, accepting different views, pouring out tea (or coffee), having a good atmosphere – all of these and more are the dāna that keeps Gilad House functioning. And it is this dāna that has kept the Buddhist path flourishing for over 2600 years.
