Overview – Ways to Give

The Dharma teachings of Culadasa are made possible by generous people like you.

The cultivation of generosity is essential to Buddhist practice and the first quality of an awakened mind. Giving opens and expands our hearts, allows us to go beyond our attachments, and dissolves the sense of separateness between ourselves and others, deepening our experience of joy. We invite you to enrich your practice by sharing your gifts with Dharma Treasure. There are many ways to give – through dana, donations, and selfless service.

Dharma Treasure is the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that supports the work of Upasaka Culadasa through two main sources of revenue: dana and donations. Dana is a gift from the heart given at the time of receiving service. A donation is a gift from the heart made at any other time. These are not “tips”, but essential funds that cover healthcare and basic operational costs. In addition, Dharma Treasure depends upon the contribution of time and talent by many dedicated volunteers.

All of these gifts – including yours – directly support the Dharma Treasure mission and enable Culadasa to continue his selfless service, sharing his deep understanding of the Dharma with everyone. With heartfelt joy, we thank you for your generosity.
