Among Buddhist practitioners, generosity is often referred to as “dana,” the word for “generosity arising effortlessly from deep gratitude” in Pali, the language of the Buddha.
Generosity is the first of the ten parami, or qualities of character, that the Buddha taught his students to cultivate. The practice of generosity develops lovingkindness and compassion, deepens awareness of our interconnectedness and encourages non-attachment.
