A Legacy of Giving and Mutual Benefit
For centuries across cultures there has been a harmonious and interdependent relationship between those who offer the Dharma and those who receive it. As those who teach the Dharma out of sincere compassion are sustained by material offerings, those who give these offerings generate powerful merit and positive karma while experiencing the conditions necessary to develop their buddha potential.
Offering to a Dharma center is one great way to move forward on this blissful path, even while one is currently dedicating many hours a day to work, family, and other responsibilities. Giving from the heart also arouses a deep sense of joy, brings us closer to others, and puts us in touch with our potential for greatness, wisdom, and infinite love and compassion.
