Teachings Online. Practice at Home.

What is meant by donation-based (dana)? In the Buddhist tradition, meditation teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless; we also practice dana, or generosity, by making monetary offerings for the teachings. Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart. Thus, where the group specifies “donation-based,” it is suggesting whatever donation (or dana) you would like to give for the teachings provided.
