Dana or Alms Giving for my late father   Leave a comment


Dana or Alms Giving for my late father, Lim Wooi Boon at Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple, Penang

This Dana was conducted today, Thursday 5th October, 2017 starting at 11.00 am at the Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple, Burmah Lane, Penang.

 

From Wikipedia.

Dāna (Devanagari: दान) is a Sanskrit and Pali word that connotes the virtue of generosity, charity or giving of alms in Indian philosophies. It is alternatively transliterated as daana.

In HinduismBuddhismJainism and Sikhism, dāna is the practice of cultivating generosity. It can take the form of giving to an individual in distress or need. It can also take the form of philanthropic public projects that empower and help many.

According to historical records, dāna is an ancient practice in Indian traditions, tracing back to Vedic traditions.

Dāna as a formal religious act is directed specifically to a monastic or spiritually-developed person. In Buddhist thought, it has the effect of purifying and transforming the mind of the giver.

Generosity developed through giving leads to experience of material wealth and possibly being reborn in happy states. In the Pāli Canon‘s Dighajanu Sutta, generosity (denoted there by the Pāli word cāga, which can be synonymous with dāna) is identified as one of the four traits conditioning happiness and wealth in the next life. Conversely, lack of giving leads to unhappy states and poverty.

Dāna leads to one of the pāramitās or “perfections”, the dānapāramitā. This can be characterized by unattached and unconditional generosity, giving and letting go.[citation needed]

Buddhists believe that giving without seeking anything in return leads to greater spiritual wealth. Moreover, it reduces the acquisitive impulses that ultimately lead to continued suffering from egotism.
