The way of the Buddha is to know yourself;
To know yourself is to forget yourself;
To forget yourself is to be awakened by all things. Dogen - Thirteenth Century Zen Monk

Dana - The Practice of Generosity
Taos Mountain Sangha is supported solely by dana. Dana (pronounced “dah-na”) is a Pali word meaning generosity. Dating back to the time of the Buddha, there has existed interdependence between those who offer the teachings and those who receive them. The teachings are given freely, since they are considered priceless.
Taos Mountain Sangha also offers opportunity for people to become Sustaining Members with a pledge of dana on a regular basis. Inquiries may be made to the President of the Sangha.
