What is offered is in the tradition known as dana (pronounced “dah-na”), a Pali word meaning generosity. Dating back to the time of the Buddha, there has existed an interdependence between those who offer the teachings and those who receive them. According to the Buddha, generosity, or sharing what we have, is one of the central pillars of a spiritual life. The Buddha created a system to develop a quality of open-handedness whereby those who share the teachings are dependent on those who receive them. Monks and nuns go on daily alms rounds with a begging bowl, relying on the generosity of lay people for support in continuing their teaching and spiritual life.
Each person’s situation is different. The suggestion is simply a guideline. You may give less or you may give more. The principle is that generosity should be a source of joy for you from a sense of appreciation for the teachings. Your dana is received with gratitude.
“The donor, before giving, is glad; while giving, is inspired; and after giving, is gratified.” – the Buddha
