A Precious Opportunity to Give

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you probably know how important the practice of dana (generosity) is to me and the importance it has in the practice of the Buddhadhamma, especially for lay practitioners. Traditionally, there are a number of factors to consider when giving with limited resources and I encourage everyone to read a little more about the foundational importance of dana here: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/various/wheel367.html

Apropos of this though, a dear kalyanamitta who has dedicated her life to the practice of the Dhamma as a mae chee (a Buddhist nun) is now in need of our help. She desperately needs dental work. Please consider giving to her fund here so that she may receive the care she needs:

As from a heap of flowers many a garland is made, even so many good deeds should be done by one born a mortal.
