   Dana is the practice of developing the qualities of kindness and generosity.  We develop these qualities because they make fertile ground for liberating wisdom and compassion to grow deep in our hearts.  The practice of dana provides an opportunity to support teachings that help us realize that true happiness arises with non-attachment.  Since the time of the Buddha there has been a tradition that those who offer the teachings are supported by their community.  If you find these teachings are of value and wish to make an offering to help our center support it's resident teacher and to bring other teachers to Colorado Springs, the Internet and to people whom would otherwise not have teachings available to them, we would be very grateful for your help.
