Dana (The Ancient Practice of Generosity)
PIMC follows the ancient practice of Dana, in which the teachings are offered generously, with open hands and no holding back. The center flourishes as a result of the reciprocal dana through which participants express their gratitude in the form of service and financial support. Those who have found PIMC life-changing are also motivated by their gratitude to help make the teachings available to the next person who comes through the front doors. Each act of sharing one's attention, energy, material wealth or time enhances one's capacity to relinquish clinging, resulting in freedom and happiness.
PIMC is committed to the principle that all people shall have access to programs offered through the center, regardless of financial means.
This precious resource of the Dharma exists due to the generosity of others. To participate in this legacy of gratitude and support of the Buddha’s teachings, you can help sustain PIMC for today and for future participants through a financial gift.
