A Week for Dana Parami – Aftermath

I just realized that I had never posted the initial aditthana but it’s been a week now so I’ll report how it went. Despite not always being able to live up to the ideal of freely giving whenever asked I discovered a hidden well-spring of resistance, resentment and ill-will that was surprising in terms of it’s strength and complete irrationality. In this regard my week devoted to Dana Parami was a great success. Just seeing the resistance and acting from an intention to help myself and those around me may not eradicate the aversion but it certainly sows seeds for a more  skillful character on the future.


  1. Well done 🙂
