Dana – Generosity and the Basis of Dharma
The Dharma Bums offers its classes and meditation practice space to the community to serve the Dharma. We believe that Dana (Generosity) and Dharma (the Buddhist teachings) are a seamless whole. The practice of Dana (Generosity) is exemplified by the person who gives their time to share Dharma and by the students and practitioners participation, support and service in return.
All individuals who lead classes are instructed not to ask for donations or give a “Dana” talk. The motivation and activity of ‘Dana’ is entirely the responsibility of each of us. When people do offer donations, which they often do, 100% of the money goes to support The Dharma Bum Temple.
We rely on your support to maintain monthly expenses and appreciate your donations.
"I am so fortunate and grateful to be able to give back (a little bit) to the place that saved my life and truly served as a refuge for me during those wonderful yet challenging years! I know that every penny counts and is being put to great use. My hope is that the temple doors will continue to be open for years to come so that people like me will be able to be exposed to the beauty and simplicity of the Dharma and meditation! Thank you so much for all of your love and support and for all of your time devoted to the temple!" - Wes Stover
