I’ve been reflecting a lot on dana (generosity) and, to my unenlightened mind, it seems as if I it really does contain much of the path. Many of us will be familiar with the shorthand formulation of the path expressed as dana, sila and bhavana but it really seems that dana is present in all three. Interestingly enough I see the spirit of giving even more clearly in each of the paramis. Well, interesting to me at any rate. More later but now soccer and rock band and then out to the in-laws.
