Dana is a Buddhist way of reaching out to ask for your support. Selfless giving is one of the Buddhist teachings that leads to greater spiritual wealth. In many Buddhist countries, one of the practices of monks is to go out with a large wooden bowl asking for food. When the monks return to the temple, these donations of food are shared with all the monks.
Here your donation helps us to continue providing programs and events that inspire our mind and soul. By exploring the history of Buddhism and Japanese Culture, to learn about and practice mindfulness, which enables us to have a more meaningful and happy life.
