According to Buddhist teaching, giving is an act that can transform and purify the mind. The custom of Dana (or generosity), set forth by the Buddha, is a compassionate and ethical practice, based in the realization of interconnectedness and a way how you can support your community of practice (sangha) in sustaining the work and mission of Zen.
The exquisite paradox in Buddhism is that the more we give or even give without seeking something in return, the wealthier (in the broadest sense of the word) we will become. By giving we destroy those acquisitive impulses that ultimately lead to further suffering.
