About the Practice of Dana
Dana is the ancient Buddhist practice of giving and receiving. Monks and lay people together sustain the Temple by being generous with all they have to offer. Generosity is the first sign of Enlightenment and the practice of generosity opens one’s heart to the Dharma. Pine Mountain Temple has no source of income other than your kind donations, which are the traditional way to show appreciation for the Teaching of the Buddha. By making an offering of money you participate in the existence of the Temple and the merit of such action will benefit all beings.
