Support Open Mind Zen
For ages, Zen Buddhist communities have survived on the dana, or generosity, of their practitioners. Dana is the first of the 6 paramitas (perfections) of Buddhism. It is considered a vital part of the practice. A paramita is a virtue that requires practice to cultivate. We give openly to support the Dharma, but also to practice non-clinging. Not only is this an important spiritual practice, it is impossible for the dharma to survive without your generosity. Small gifts when gathered together change the world.
