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 Renze Nesbit, Treasurer of the Sangha.
